The side-event "EUGLOH: Solutions for One Health Issues in Europe and the Arctic" is scheduled at Arctic Frontiers Monday January 29, 9am-10.30am. EUGLOH is the acronym of the European University Alliance for Global Health initiated by the University of Paris-Saclay that UVSQ is an associate member of. MIARC has been asked to organise this event to stage a discussion about One Health Issues and Solutions in the Arctic and Europe.

One Health Issues are a central concern in Europe and the Arctic. As the recent COVID crisis has shown, they involve social, economic and political aspects, but also raise questions of identity, climate justice and intercultural exchange. Higher Education Institutions have a key role to play in finding solutions and training actors capable of responding to such new global challenges. The European University Alliance EUGLOH is dedicated to Global Health Issues. Piloted by the University of Paris-Saclay, France’s leading research-intensive university with top 20 Shanghai ranking, the consortium consists of nine universities including Lund University from Sweden and the Arctic University of Norway/UiT, to mention the two members from Arctic countries, with Arctic and polar studies at Paris-Saclay representing close to 150 researchers and more experts working in the other partner universities, notably Hamburg and Munich. The round table will focus on the urgent need of cooperating on these issues from both a transdisciplinary and multilateral point-of-view, connecting teams from Europe, the European Arctic and the Arctic at large for the benefit of people in Europe and the Arctic. Sharing best practice and competence across frontiers are likely to be crucial in this respect. Panelists will share their own experience and suggest pathways to tackling these issues both in the North and South.
