U.Porto in the World - [email protected]

U.Porto is a founding member of one of the first European Universities. EUGLOH gathers talent and resources from some of the most prestigious universities in Europe. It is supported by an advanced cooperation model in education, research, and innovation in global health.


U.Porto is one of the founding institutions of the European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH), a European consortium of academic cooperation created in 2019. The following prestigious universities are also consortium partners: Université Paris-Saclay (France), Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Germany), Lund University (Sweden), University of Szeged (Hungary). and, since 2023, the universities of Hamburg (Germany), UiT - Arctic University of Norway (Norway), Novi Sad (Serbia ) and Alcalá (Spain).

The consortium is dedicated to Global Health and represents an academic community of more than 300,000 students, bringing together high-quality resources and infrastructure as well as a critical mass of state-of-the-art research in education, research and innovation. It is financed by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ Programme.

EUGLOH has made it possible for its members to establish teaching and training partnerships, develop training programmes for lecturers and researchers, develop new models for in-person and virtual mobility, and organise joint applications for project funding through an advanced model of academic cooperation.

Initially dedicated solely to teaching and training, EUGLOH has since expanded its area of intervention to include research and innovation with the EUGLOHRIA project.
