IDEALiTER is the continuation of the European projects IDEAL and IDEAL+, financed by Erasmus +, for a period of three years. Still in the field of infectious diseases, Professors Claire Lejeune and Caroline Charlier-Woerther continue the project that they initiated more than six years ago, within the School of Medicine of Université Paris Cité.

In December 2022, the 6 partnering institutions: Università Cattolica del Sacre Cuore (Rome), Ethniko Kai Kapodistriako Panepistimio Athinon (University of Athens), Universiteit Antwerpen (Antwerp), UMC (Utrech Medisch Centrum), Hamburg Eppendorf Universitätsklinikum (Hamburg) and Université Paris Cité as well as the associated partners – NHS Lothian (Edinburgh) and Aston University (Birmingham) and the members of the external committee (UniCamillus of Rome and University of Leeds) met in Paris, for the launching of the new project.


IDEALiTER is dedicated to students and teachers and intends to deepen the contents of the training courses initiated by IDEAL and IDEAL+.


The participating medical students will be able to participate to advanced courses on infectious diseases taught by professors from the European partner universities and summer schools and to access free online resources. Young teachers will be able to learn new and innovative teaching methods, such as “Teach the trainers”. This innovative teaching method allows students to be accompanied on several case studies based on symptoms given during the course and allowing diagnosis.


Mentoring for other universities in the European Union will also be set up so that they can develop the “IDEAL method” within their program.


IDEALiTER is therefore a program that improves the initial courses and allows students to deepen their knowledge of infectious diseases, innovative teaching methods and to consolidate a network of health professionals throughout the European Union. This opportunity is open to medical students and teachers from Université Paris Cité and partner institutions through the IDEALiTER project.
