My future job – EUGLOH as a bridge between graduates and employers

Webinar in English and suitable for EUGLOH partners


This webinar, promoted by the EUGLOH Alliance, aims to stimulate the debate on the role of the EUGLOH* in bridging academia and the labour market. Companies, students and academics will discuss the transversal skills needed for the jobs of the future – in a global labour market, in constant change and in the context of the post-pandemic scenario. Invited speakers will also focus on the importance of promoting flexible learning pathways and lifelong learning, in international, interdisciplinary and collaborative settings.

The EUGLOH Alliance – European University for Global Health is a pilot initiative funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ Programme. It is composed by 5 European Universities: University of Porto, Lund University (Sweden), Ludwig- Maximilians-Universität München (Germany), University of Szeged (Hungary) and Université Paris-Saclay (France). Its main objective is to stimulate the quality of European Higher Education, Research and Innovation, aiming at becoming a reference international campus in the field of Global Health.
