The University of Barcelona, in charge of coordinating the  Eurolife university network during the period 2015-2017, held, on October 24 and 25, three meetings for this network which assessed the task that has been carried out and conducted the transfer to the new coordinator: the University Medical Center Göttingen (2018-2020). Specifically, the ones that met were the Eurolife Education Alliance, the Eurolife Steering Committee and the administrators of the network.

During the time in which Eurolife was coordinated by the Vice-Rector’s Office for Research of the UB, two new projects -such as the Eurolife Summer School- were launched. The first edition of this summer school that took place in July in Barcelona, will continue next year in the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC, Netherlands), and will cover the topic of Molecular Mechanisms in Cancer – Translating Discoveries into Personalized Therapies. The Eurolife Mobility Program and the Scholarship for Early Career Researchers are other initiatives which are related to mobility for young researchers (bachelor degree, master degree and postdoctoral students), launched by Eurolife and from which more than fifty researchers and students have benefited. In addition, another program to promote new collaborations between three or more universities from the network to conduct European research project has been promoted.
