In this semester, not only teaching, but academic events were also moved online in SZTE. Our university hosted the EUGLOH Summer School between 6-10 July. The main focus of the event were the biomedical data processing and the global aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
SZTE joined the European University Alliance for Global Health (EUGLOH) a year ago together with four other universities. The primary aim of this cooperation is to create a new university structure within the EU and to promote student mobility among the partner universities.
During the one-week programme, professors and colleagues of the five partner universities met virtually in Szeged in order to discuss the biomedical data processing, artificial intelligence, machine learning and the global aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Students could also join the live streaming and video courses.
It is a great honour for our Faculty that one of our professors, Dr. Anita Pelle, was also invited to participate as the only representative from the field of social sciences. In her lecture, she elaborated on the effects of different black swan events, such as the 2008-2009 financial crisis or the COVID-19 pandemic, on the economy of the European Union, with the focus on the GDP distribution of EU countries before and after the crisis and the transformation of international trade in goods among the member states as a result of the pandemic. She presented her results regarding the East-Central Europe region at the 25th International Summer University organized also online by the Institute of Advanced Studies Kőszeg in June.
