EDUPROMO : Promoting higher education through collaboration and exchange

Road in Zambia

In this brand new project, the University of Zambia, Makerere University, and the Veterinary Faculty will promote quality and sustainability in higher education by arranging courses, promote mobility, and joint activities in the field of One Health.



The University of Zambia (UNZA), Makerere University (MAK), and the Veterinary Faculty at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU-VET) have a lonstanding collaboration stretching more than 20 years on core areas of One Health research and education focusing on zoonoses, toxicology, aquatic and environmental health.
EDUPROMO will ensure the sustainability of already established postgraduate courses and training at UNZA and MAK and further develop PhD courses in close collaboration with ongoing projects. EDUPROMO will
build capacity at UNZAs and MAKs satellite -and regional universities, such as in Tanzania, Malawi and South-Sudan.

The project head is associate professor Mette Helen Bjørge Mülle, Department of Production Animal Clinical Sciences (PRODMED), with participants from Department of Paraclinical Sciences.



The overarching aim of this project is to strengthen and further develop established PhD tracks/programs within One Health research and education focusing on zoonoses, toxicology, aquatic and environmental

This will be achieved by shared theoretical and practical teaching and supervision at UNZA, MAK and NMBU-VET, building on mutual academic collaboration and student mobility. This will ensure
sustainability of PhD courses and learning outcome for PhD students at the partner universities as well as satellite and regional universities. For all PhD students, this project will increase their competence
by exposing them to leading scientific experts and researchers in the field of One Health (food safety, animal health, human health, environmental health, fish health, zoonosis). In addition, PhD students
from North and South will gain experience in teaching and supervision of fellow students, which lay the foundation for future academic employment.
