Opening Ceremony of the International Master of Science in Occupational Safety and Health

Location: Munich, Germany

Date: 09.07.2012


Over the course of our co-operations with partner universities in Latin America and our contact with the participants of the summer schools in Germany and in Latin America, we identified a strong need for a Master’s degree in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in Latin America. A subsequent needs assessment among 223 experts from the field confirmed the need for a Master’s degree combining research and practical training.

In order to fill this gap and support the Latin American countries in the area of OSH, we have, in close cooperation with our Latin American partners, developed the Master International Occupational Safety and Health.

The inauguration ceremony tooks place at the IBZ (Internationales Begenungszentrum der Wissenschaft) building.
