The University of Porto and its partners Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich (Germany), Lund University (Sweden), University of Szeged (Hungary) and Université Paris-Saclay (France) have created a pilot European University called “European University Alliance for Global Health”, inspired by European values and committed to education for global challenges of health and well-being.

Selected for the first European Universities call for proposals launched by the European Commission as part of the Erasmus+ programme, the EUGLOH  focuses on a unifying and transdisciplinary topic, global health, in order to deal with major societal challenges.

With this alliance, the five universities thus aim to combine their unique  expertise and resources to offer the best education to their students thanks to the excellence of their programmes and their cutting-edge research and equipment.

EUGLOH  will involve about 200,000 students, from bachelor’s degree to doctorate, as well as academic and non-academic staff of the five universities. By 2025, 50% of the graduates of the Alliance shall have had a mobility opportunity (physical and/or virtual) at least once during their studies.

The project will be managed based on a shared governance model involving students, staff and associated partners.
