Establishing a Knowledge Hub on Global Health
39 professors from Circle U. member universities have been appointed in the framework of the Academic Chair Programme. Seven of them in the Knowledge Hub on Global Health. Who are they, and what are their main tasks?
The Knowledge Hub on Global Health will address the pressing issue of global and local inequities in health and seek to develop strategies for providing better healthcare for all.
The hub will organise its first summer school for PhD students in Paris in July. The overall topic is «rethinking global health» and we will focus on three sub-themes: politics and governance, diversity and equity and the history and future of global health.
These are the seven Chairs in the Knowledge Hub on Global Health
The role of the chairs
- Link education and research within and across disciplines, focusing here on issues related to climate;
- Engage students to take an active role in knowledge creation and socially-engaged research on a theme which already captures their interest;
- Represent and champion Circle U. within the alliance, nationally and internationally, as well as with external stakeholders. One opportunity for such exchanges will most probably be the Training Programme for Practitioners on Climate Change (see article on ERIA).
- Stimulate new models of academic collaboration and partnership in their domain of expertise, and share these across Circle U.
