Project Details


he International MSc in Infectious Diseases and One Health (IDOH+) is a two-year (120 ECTS) joint master degree taught in English and awarded by three European universities (Université de Tours (UT) - France, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) - Spain and Hannover Medical School (Medizinische Hochschule Hannover, MHH)- Germany. The three universities work in very close collaboration with the worldwide recognized research institutes and centers: INRA, CReSA-IRTA and the R. Koch Institute. The IDOH+ consortium also includes 46 associate partners (universities, research centres, national public bodies, NGO and companies focused on pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, vaccines and animal nutrition). They will be involved in the programme in different ways, such as providing guest lecturers in addition to internships. The IDOH programme has ambitious goals to attract the very best students worldwide and to construct a multidisciplinary network focused on infectious diseases in a One Health framework, addressing health risks at the animal-human-ecosystems interfaces.
All students begin their education at the UT, continue their second semester at the UAB and then join the MHH for the third semester. They will be trained in infectious diseases, public health and One Health concept, immunology, host-pathogen interactions, virulence and resistance especially to antibiotics, animal welfare and animal models, ethics, epidemiology, emerging/zoonotic diseases, disease management, food safety, biosafety/biocontainment, diagnostics, translational medicine, innovative therapies, intervention strategies, genomes and gene editing, scientific communication. Moreover, IDOH+ students will follow courses in French and Spanish to acquire basic skills in these two widespread spoken languages. Upon completion of their coursework, the students will proceed to a 6-month masters thesis project at any organization in the network. A clear advantage for the IDOH+ students is that they can choose from an outstanding number of different partners to carry out the research training period.
A summer school focused on transversal skills will be organised in Barcelona. A Master thesis defense workshop will be held at the end of the second academic year of each intake. We will invite our industry partners to present their recent developments and their company’s research focus in networking symposia. At the end of the IDOH+ programme, students will be awarded a joint diploma.
With the IDOH+ programme, we aim to provide students with the indispensable tools to be adaptable, flexible and open to new environments, i.e., we are giving them the chance to experience true internationality and mobility, and to form close friendships as well as to build a professional network with people from all over the world in addition to developing essential skills in infectious diseases and One Health concept.
