Applications open: Una Europa One Health Summer School for PhD candidates

13 February 2023

Applications are now open for the second Una Europa One Health Summer School. One Health works towards the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and explores how the health of humans, animals, other organisms and the environment are inextricably linked.

Tighter collaboration across sectors and disciplines – including life sciences, public health and social sciences – is crucial to tackle contemporary health challenges. The Una Europa One Health Summer School will bring together students, doctoral candidates and staff from across the Una Europa Alliance to explore interdisciplinary One Health issues and work towards building solutions together.


The Deep Dive Summer School (for PhD candidates) will take place from 31 July - 2 August at KU Leuven in Belgium. It is for doctoral researchers at Una Europa universities. There is a registration fee of €300. The estimated total cost for the Summer School is €600 including accommodation and food (but not travel). Applications can be submitted until March 6th, 2023. You will be notified of your acceptance on April 17th, 2023.
