One Health

One Health is an approach which recognises that human and medicine is inextricably linked with the environment around them and that by analysing different species, shared solutions can be obtained.

Edinburgh is an acknowledged leader in this field, which has become increasingly important with the emergence of Covid-19.

Digital future

The One Health event forms one part of a series of Una Europa discussions taking place this week.

One 4 November, a talk entitled ‘Resistance is futile. You will be digitalized!’ will take place.

This discussion will examine what the future of digital co-operation in academia might look like. How will digital tools influence our teaching practices? Which virtual platforms and tools might academics and researchers use in the future?

European co-operation

This week’s events are organised by Una Europa, a group of eight leading universities - including Edinburgh - that seeks to redesign the education sector in Europe.

UNA Europa members include Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna, Uni-versité Paris 1 Panthéon – Sorbonne, KU Leuven, Freie Universität Berlin and Jagiellonian University, Krakow

This week’s discussions will see leaders from each of the Una Europa members discussing how the alliance can further enhance partnership working. This is of particular importance following the UK’s departure from the European Union.
