One Health Summer School

Apply now to attend the first Una Europa One Health Summer School, an exciting opportunity to connect with your fellow Una Europa students for two inspiring, eye-opening weeks at the University of Edinburgh from 25 July to 5 August 2022.

Successful applicants will all receive funded places for the academic programme of the Summer School, with funding for travel and subsistence provided by the Una Europa 1Europe Project. 

One Health works towards the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and explores how health of humans, animals, other organisms and the environment are inextricably linked. As proven by the Covid-19 pandemic, health challenges that stem from the complex interaction between humans, animals, plants and ecosystems call for a review of existing concepts and methods. Tighter collaboration across sectors and disciplines – including life sciences, public health and social sciences – is crucial.

The Una Europa One Health Summer School will bring together students and staff from across our Alliance and beyond to explore these interdisciplinary issues and work towards building solutions together. You will develop your knowledge of One Health and/ or Planetary Health by tackling a related global challenge, working with other undergraduate students from European and International universities to develop and pitch an idea.
