What does EUGLOH mean for LU?
The EUGLOH project will run for three years and involve all groups within Lund University: students, doctoral students, teaching staff, researchers, administrative officers and management.
The approach is broad, has an interdisciplinary perspective and all faculties will be involved. One of the project’s focus areas is to strengthen education linked to the large research facilities at the participating universities.
LU will lead one of six work packages – WP2: Joint curricula design – which includes the creation of joint master’s programmes, but also the development of courses for professionals in the health sector.
Sub-projects – Work Package 1-6
- WP1 – Management of the project – led by Université Paris-Saclay
- WP2 – Joint curricula design – led by Lund University – which includes the creation of joint master’s programmes, but also the development of courses for professionals in the health sector.
- WP3 – Research & Innovation – led by the University of Szeged
- WP4 – Professional and personal development & employability – led by the University of Porto
- WP5 – Alliance campus life – led by Université Paris-Saclay
- WP6 – Sustainability and dissemination – led by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
EUGLOH will focus on:
- Increase in the number of short and long mobilities at all levels within the network
- Development of opportunities for virtual mobility and online courses
- Development of the reception of exchange students in collaboration with the students’ unions
- Implementation of the European student card
- Activities with a focus on lifelong learning in cooperation with employers,
- Student employability,
- Increased opportunities for students to gain research experience,
- Creation of joint programmes at master’s and doctoral levels.
Communication and internal support
Providing information and canvassing support for the project is to take place broadly at Lund University through the University’s different committees, faculties and groups. It is of utmost importance that all faculties participate in the development of the project’s content and identify what Lund University will gain from the collaboration in the future.
In order for the project to be successful, well-coordinated decisions will be required at both the central level (resource allocation, establishment of study programmes, administrative processes) and at the faculty and department levels (resource allocation, programme syllabi, range of courses offered, course syllabi, quality assurance, staffing, administrative processes).
EUGLOH at LU
EUR 6.25 million over 3 years, of which LU’s part comprises EUR 1.1 million. LU will also co-finance the project with a total of SEK 3 million.
As much of the work as possible is to take place within the established activities and the project organisation is to be kept to a minimum.
