Sophia Groh (Schotta lab), Lucía Martin Caballero (Braun lab) and Daan Verhagen (Müller-Planitz lab) are three of the LMU doctoral researchers selected to participate in the first EUGLOH Doctoral Camp, a entrepreneurship workshop in Paris from March 31-April 2, 2020. The workshop will organize challenges on open innovation in the context of global health, aiming to introduce entrepreneurial concepts, such as valorisation, entrepreneurship methodology and culture, design thinking, lean startup, project management, customer approach, producing and exploiting results.
The interuniversity Alliance EUGLOH – European University for Global Health, a pilot initiative financed by the European Commission within the Erasmus+ Program, is formed by 5 European Universities: Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Germany), University of Porto (Portugal), University of Lund (Sweden), University of Szeged (Hungary) and Université Paris-Saclay (France). During the next three years, EUGLOH will develop interdisciplinary activities particularly in the area of education and training relating to the topic of global health. LMU is the only Bavarian university to participate in one of the networks that were chosen for funding. From 2021 on, the “European Universities Initiative” will be expanded further as part of the new Erasmus program. See LMU press release from July 2019.
