EUGLOH Wins Research & Innovation Grant!

The five partner universities have successfully applied for a Horizon 2020 call that will complement the education aspect of EUGLOH with a research and innovation dimension.

EUGLOH is very happy to announce that the European Commission has selected its application as one of the successful European Universities projects that will receive additional funding from September on.

Building on its education dimension, the project “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, by building capacity as part of sharing access to research infrastructures, and by stimulating sustainable innovation and academia-business cooperation across its local ecosystems. Thereby, it will promote the translation of research into health-related innovations and the next generation of global health experts.
