THE EUROPEAN ALLIANCE FOR GLOBAL HEALTH – TRANSFORMATION THROUGH JOINT RESEARCH AND INNOVATION ACTION

Project description

New joint action plan in research on pandemics

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the need to step up international and cross-sectoral collaboration in research and innovation. To ensure that future generations of European innovators, practitioners, experts and leaders in global health and well-being benefit from related opportunities, the EU-funded EUGLOHRIA project is helping to create a training campus. As one of the 17 selected pilot ‘European Universities’, the European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH) and its five partner institutions (Paris-Saclay University, Lund University, University of Szeged, University of Porto and Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich) are pursuing the proposal titled The European Alliance for Global Health – Transformation through Joint Research and Innovation Action (EUGLOHRIA). It sets out an ambitious agenda of institutional transformation aimed at addressing global health challenges.

Objective

As one of 17 selected pilot “European Universities”, the “European Alliance for Global Health” (EUGLOH) and its five partner institutions (UPSaclay, LU, USZ, UPORTO, LMU) are pursuing the long-term goal of creating a European campus to train future generations of European innovators, practitioners, experts and leaders in global health and well-being. Building on its education dimension, the Alliance’s proposal “The European Alliance for Global Health – Transformation through Joint Research and Innovation Action” (EUGLOHRIA), sets out an ambitious agenda of institutional transformation in the areas of research and innovation as part of which the Alliance will pursue the integrated mission of developing into a world-class higher education, research and innovation alliance addressing global health challenges ranging from public health and environmental protection to food security. This mission focuses on the urgent need to step up international and cross-sectoral collaboration in research and innovation in tackling global health crises, especially in light of the current COVID19-pandemic. Based on the excellence and the breadth of interdisciplinary expertise of the partners, the Alliance will respond to this need by developing a joint action plan in research on pandemics with a focus on COVID19 and its ramifications, building capacity as part of sharing access to “Excellence Core Facilities” in global health and stimulating sustainable innovation and academia-business cooperation across its local ecosystems, thereby promoting the translation of research into health-related innovations and the next generation of global health experts.
