5th Erasmus Run +
"We're breaking the Polish record!" is the slogan of the next edition of the run, which has become a permanent fixture in the calendar of events organized by the National Agency of the Erasmus + Program and the European Solidarity Corps. The event, organized for the fifth time, will again be held in a remote mode. On September 24, 2021, 4-person teams across Poland will compete, whose goal will be one: run in 60 minutes, anywhere, in total, the longest distance. This year, the National Agency is expanding the formula to include the possibility of starting individual people who will be randomly combined into relay races with other individual runners.
In this year's edition, together, we will break the Polish record in the category of "the most people who took part in the virtual race in 24 hours". Join our run and help us set a new record!
Running packages containing sportswear and medals will be sent to the first 200 registered teams!
Last year, the fourth Erasmus e-Run attracted almost 1,400 participants!
All persons interested in participating, please get in touch with the International Relations Office, email: firstname.lastname@example.org

‘Reference Site’ within the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing
It gives us a great pleasure to announce that Poznan University of Medical Sciences has been certified by the EU Commission and thenceforward will act as a ‘Reference Site’ within the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing.
This one-star distinction qualifies us to join the best institutes of different regions, e.g. Marshall’s Office, Clinical Hospitals and business agencies which, using and implementing innovative technologies, work together for the better future for the elderly in Europe.
Our ‘Reference Site’ activities within medical innovation contribute to development, exchange of experience and cooperation with other institutes. Furthermore, cooperation with other European partners enables us to apply for joint European grants (within the H2020 framework) strengthening our position internationally.
