The joint Erasmus Lecture Series Launched by the University of Würzburg Continue in the Spring Semester of 2021

12 March 2021

The success of our first Erasmus International Lecture Series in the past semester has not only encouraged us to resume our lecture series in the field of “Translational Neuroscience” but also offer a new lecture series in the field of “Global Health” in the coming summer semester 2021.

The organizing university – the University of Würzburg –  thus invites interested students and staff members alike at the University of Pécs to attend both virtual lecture series, which are scheduled to run from the end of this March to May 2021.

Representatives of Erasmus partner universities of Caen, Istanbul, Ljubljana, Maribor, Marseille, Olomouc, Pécs, Rome, and Zagreb, as well as colleagues in Würzburg will share their expertise in their talks within the virtual lecture series on “Translational Neuroscience” and “Global Health”:
