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) and the University of Szeged (Hungary).
The consortium is dedicated to Global Health and represents an academic community of more than 200,000 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.
