General information

The Global Health Case Challenge is a new summer course designed to strengthen university students’ problem-solving competencies and increase their engagement in real-world global health related issues. Through a combination of academic skills and innovative thinking, 50 students will collaborate in multidisciplinary teams to come up with the best solution to a case question provided by an external public or private partner. Each team present their solution both in writing and as a short oral pitch to a panel of examinators on the final day.


Please note that the summer courses are non-residential. Participants are responsible for finding and funding accommodation during their stay in Copenhagen.
