Work with company leaders in an international team!

University of Szeged has joined Demola Global franchise last year. This Finnish initiative provides a scene for students and researchers to work together with company leaders and top managers. Companies come up with the problems that they would like to get an innovative solution. That’s what you can help with. 

How does it actually look like?

It is basically an 8-week project that you will work on, closely with other students and high-level company representatives as an equal team member. We are intentionally looking for different disciplines to be represented in the team. The reason is that we are seeking a team that can look at a problem from various aspects. It usually requires students from different fields and backgrounds.

We don’t expect you to have professional knowledge/experience, but we encourage students with thinking out of the box. No matter where you are in your studies right now, this opportunity is for everyone willing to put their time into the 8-week project period.

It is just a great opportunity for many reasons:

  • Team working skills
  • International team
  • Worth of an internship
  • Additional value in your CV
  • Additional points for most scholarships
  • Work with top managers and company leaders

We are glad to announce that the application for the third Demola project period has started. The next case came alive thanks to Univer Product Plc. They are a prominent player in the food industry and trade field. Their challenge is focusing on health-consciousness and food consumption.

The application period ends on 27 March and will be followed up by an interview because of the high number of applicants. After the team of selected students formed, you will get to know the company side as well as your Demola facilitator at a Kick-off event on 1 April.

Apply today and don’t miss out on this unique opportunity!

Kommunikációs tréningen vettek részt az SZTE Virtus Vállalkozáskatalizátor csapatai

Bolya Imre kommunikációs tréningjén vehettek részt 2020. március 2-án az SZTE Virtus Vállalkozáskatalizátor Program leendő startupjai. A startupok és pitch világából jól ismert előadó, illetve a Karizma című könyv szerzője egész napos programon ismertette, milyen egy jó pitch, hogyan készüljenek ötleteik prezentálására.

A program résztvevői betekintést nyerhettek a Pitch Canvas rejtelmeibe, átvették az előadás során hangsúlyozni szükséges befektetői prioritásokat. A Virtus Program csapatai összesen 8 ötletet mutattak be a nap folyamán. Megismerhettünk AI vezérelt egészségügyben használt alkalmazást, újfajta fizetési lehetőséget, valamint vendéglátóegységeket katalogizáló alkalmazást is.

– Egyéni szinten is képesnek kell lenniük a csapattagoknak az ötletük prezentálására – emelte ki az előadó. Ennek megfelelően egyéni előadásokat tartottak a résztvevők, majd mindenki visszajelzést kapott, amelynek köszönhetően minden résztvevő látható fejlődésen ment keresztül a nap folyamán, ami a végső prezentációknál egyértelműen látszódott és ezzel, egy lépéssel közelebb is kerültek álmaik megvalósításához.

The first EUGLOH conference has kicked off at the University of Szeged

For two days, the representatives from the universities of the European Alliance for Global Health will work together to discuss project topics at the University of Szeged. During the English language conference, the partners will present the tasks of each working group and outline their future plans.

In 2019 the University of Szeged (USZ) applied for the Erasmus+ European Universities call in a consortium of four European universities, the consortium was awarded a three-year grant in the European University Associations Programme. The collaboration will provide mobility for 210,000 students, 23,000 teachers, researchers and administrators across the five collaborating universities. In addition to offering students, flexible curricula for students who will obtain a European degree, students will have the opportunity to tailor their studies to their needs: for instance, they can select when and in which partner institution they wish to pursue their studies.

The objective of the EUGLOH project is to develop education and implement a project that requires deeper and more coordinated cooperation. During the planning process, different work packages were identified:

  • education development,
  • carry out activities to promote students’ future careers,
  • coordinate student research and innovation activities.

Additionally, the partners will work together on communication and long-term sustainability issues, and on implementing the joint campus life of the five universities.

The keyword of establishing the consortium was global health, meaning educational, student, and research collaboration with respect to the health value chain. We need to go back to such basics as interpreting healthy food, healthcare, prevention, healthcare provision, medical education, pharmacist education, health economics, and the legal aspect of healthcare. Therefore, the window should be opened so wide that more fields of study can join within the university and in cooperation between the five universities. The Virtus Programme will be actively involved in this collaborative work, mainly by joining innovation projects and challenges, and in the field of innovation-focused multidisciplinary education programmes.

The participation of the University of Szeged in the programme is due to several factors – Professor László Rovó, Rector of the University of Szeged has emphasized at the conference opening. He has underlined that the project will make the University of Szeged more attractive to both Hungarian and foreign students in the future, as the applicants will now be members of a 200,000-member student community. This new type of collaboration will help dynamically improve the quality of teaching and research at the university and to deepen its European reach,” he added.

The Vice-Rector of International Affairs at the Paris-Saclay University, which runs the consortium, added that when applying for the project, they were looking for European partners with high-quality health education and research, and thus involved the University of Szeged. The infrastructure in the institution and in Szeged, such as the ELI-ALPS laser research centre, provides an excellent basis for effective cooperation, he said.
