Who can apply? Am I eligible?

The One Health Summer School – Deep Dive welcomes applications from Una Europa’s doctoral researchers. This experience is designed for students from a wide range of disciplines and serves as an introduction to the One Health field with an in-depth focus on topics such as Systems Thinking.

If accepted, you will join a diverse group of students from our Una Europa partner institutions. Three students from each university of the Una Europa alliance will be selected to participate in the programme.

What is the cost of the programme?

A registration fee of €300 will be applied to all participants.

The estimated total cost for the Summer School is €600, including registration fee of €300. Applicants who are recognized as ‘staff’ at their home universities can apply for Erasmus+ Staff mobility funding for a training grant via their home university.
