A full presentation of Academic Leaders, Project Managers, Student Board representatives, and other actors in the EUGLOH-organization, you can find here.
The leadership of EUGLOH follows a shared governance model. This model ensures the participation of all members of the academic community, especially students (from all socio-cultural backgrounds, subject areas and degree levels). It also guarantees inclusive and holistic representation in the decision-making processes of the Alliance.
Responsibilities: The Governing Board is the ultimate decision-making body of the Alliance; it is entitled to consider legal issues and lobbying to or on behalf of the Alliance. It is a decision-making body that takes decisions on the overall strategic orientation and mission of the project, endorsement of the budget and legal issues concerning the consortium
Members: The Governing Board is led by a rotating chair, chosen from among the rectors and presidents of the partner institutions. The board's voting members are the President or Rector of each partner institution. It is advised by a rotating group of three (3) representatives of the International Student Board, by the representatives of the International Academic Board, and by the EUGLOH Coordinator and Secretary-General. Vice-rectors and vice-presidents as well as the Student Coordinator may also attend, among others.
Responsibilities: The Executive Board is the supervisory body for the execution of the Project; it is responsible for making the bridge between strategy and operations for the Alliance and thus has a key role in making its tactical decisions. The Executive Board shall report to and be accountable to the Governing Board.
Members: The Executive Board is led by the Alliance Coordinator. Its voting members are the Vice-Presidents, Vice-Rectors or their equivalent from each partner institution. They are advised by the International Student and Academic Boards (all members who may attend) and by the Secretary-General. Academic Work Package Leaders, Institutional Managers and Work Package Managers and co-managers may also participate.
The Secretariat is responsible for ensuring the overall execution of the EUGLOH work plan – coordinating the actions of Work Package Managers and co-managers (and through them, their teams) as well as those of the Institutional Managers.
Work package coordination
There are eight work packages, each pursuing different objectives. Every work package has its own coordination team, composed of Work Package Managers and co-managers and guided by Academic Leaders and co-leaders, students, and potentially associated partners. The Work Package Managers and co-managers are in charge of implementing tasks and activities jointly decided by the team. They work with the Secretariat to ensure the overall coordination of the EUGLOH work plan.
EUGLOH – solving global health challenges step by step – via education, research and innovation
At UiT The Arctic University of Norway you can attend courses centered on global health at both bachelor and master level.
You can attend summer schools or participate in workshops and seminars where you can meet students from Norway and other Europeans countries.
Travel and accommodation expenses are then covered. These and more opportunities are made possible by UiT being a partner university in the EUGLOH alliance.
More about EUGLOH
UiT The Arctic University of Norway has, since it was founded, prioritized the education of health personnel and research on health and welfare. We have therefore built up expertise and interdisciplinary collaboration that can contribute to developing the Arctic region in these areas.
In 2023, we deepened this work on a European level when we became a partner in The European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH). Along the way we have local partners such as Helse Nord, Troms County Council, Tromsø Municipality and Arctic Frontiers.
Today, nine European universities are partners in this alliance. They have joined forces when it comes to education, research and innovation. Their joint projects are financed by EU's ERASMUS program and Horizon Europe.
A main goal of EUGLOH is to build the future European campus for global health.
Together, the nine universities have created a common platform that opens up many opportunities for thousands of students, researchers and academic staff.
Through EUGLOH, 338,500 students, 54,000 academics and 112 faculties and schools are now connected.
Educational expertise and scientific infrastructure at the nine universities are made available through EUGLOH to both students, academic staff and researchers, within a wide range. There, life sciences and social sciences play a central role. In such a setting, emphasis is also placed on research-based learning.
EUGLOH's intercampus initiative is intended to be able to meet a number of challenges related to welfare and public health.
EUGLOH aims to make studies at each campus as easy and practically accessible as possible. It is also a goal to facilitate good working conditions for academic staff and researchers.
“Society must be prepared”
At Arctic Frontiers, European health researchers discussed how climate changes in the Arctic might cause future pandemics. They agreed that global health challenges should be addressed with a broad and holistic approach.Read more
An important goal for the EUGLOH alliance is to enable students to stay at partner universities. We have a platforms which can secure a high degree of mobility for students at bachelor's and master's levels.
This can involve short-term stays, such as workshops, summer schools, seminars, or conferences.
With programs such as ERASMUS+ it is also possible for students to have long-term study stays at EUGLOH's partner universities.
In addition to this, students can apply to have internship stays at partner universities, which are part of their own degree, or they can be trainees in a private company, facilitated by EUGLOH.
Here you can find a list of study programs, which you can apply to, at a bachelor and master level, at EUGLOH partner universities.
If you want to apply for a master’s degree, in a field relevant for global health, there are several options.
It is possible for students to apply for internships, e.g. if you want to work on an international team at a partner university.
Traineeships for studenter
One of EUGLOH's goals is to connect companies with competent candidates who want to gain experience at an international level, to complete a traineeship as part of their degree.
This can strengthen their professional competency and create a good foundation for a future career. In a job market with high mobility this may increase future prospects for employment.
EUGLOH aims to connect firms with competent candidates who would like to gain professional experience from an internship at an international level, as part of their education.
At EUGLOH partner universities it is possible to apply for traineeships which are related to global health, in several academic disciplines.
Both at UiT, and at our partner universities, you can participate in short-term courses, summer schools, seminars, workshops, and conferences. Travelling expenses and accommodation costs are covered by EUGLOH.
If you want to attend an EUGLOH event or course you can send an application to contact person mentioned in specific announcements.
The contact person can help you with application forms, financial support or other related matter.
You can read more about upcoming EUGLOH-events or courses here.
The same information is made public at UiT's homepage (in Norwegian and English).
For academic staff
University employees and researchers at the nine partner universities can apply to EUGLOH for funds to cover travel expenses to attend or arrange courses or activities.
In addition to this there are several other ways you can find support at our partner universities, to create momentum or open new doors for your career or your scientific projects.
It is possible to apply for internships for academic staff who want to be part of an international team, at UiT, or at partner universities.
At UiT and our partner universities it is possible to find PhD programmes where you can work in several fields connected with global health. Click here if you want to know more about where you can apply for such positions.

The International Cooperation Section at UiT The Arctic University of Norway is now offering new stipends of the amount of 10.000 NOK.
It is earmarked to university employees who would like to initiate activities which stimulate increased cooperation between UiT and at least one other partner university in the EUGLOH alliance.
The stipend will preferably be used for travel between two partner universities, but it can also be used to support other types of activities.
Besides from covering travel expenses, the stipend can be supplemented with other sources of funding (e.g. ERASMUS, annuum or project funding).
The stipend is only given to applicants who plan to initiate a new project or promote existing projects in areas such as education, research, innovation or cooperation between scientific institutions.
If we receive more applications than available stipends, we will prioritize applications that align with existing goals for international cooperation, within EUGLOH and/or UIT. Applications for travel funding to/from less visited partners will also be prioritized.
Click here to send us an application for a stipend.
Nye søknader blir kontinuerlig vurdert og behandlet på UiT.
Would you like to cooperate with another European university by creating new courses or seminars?
Then it might be of interest to you to look closer at the EUGLOH Seed Money Programme. It aims to enable teachers to create new joint learning pathways. By using the strengths of the respective universities, the EUGLOH partners can help tackle the global health challenges that society faces, in a very broad sense.
The programme also offers teachers the opportunity for international contacts, by working with other teachers at the EUGLOH partner universities.
The courses that are to be developed are intended to be part of the course offer for EUGLOH students.
The seed money for approved projects can be used for covering salaries, costs for travel and meetings as well as other costs. The partners will share the funding as outlined in their application.
