EUniWell selected as a 'European University'

Policy Indications

EUniWell – the European University for Well-Being – is among the consortia selected for funding in the second “European Universities” call for proposals which is part of the ERASMUS+ programme of the European Commission. The European Commission’s Directorate General for Education and Culture has selected 24 European University Alliances, which will obtain funding for their projects to become the ‘European Universities’ of the future.

EUniWell unites seven European universities from across diverse European regions. The Universities of Birmingham, Cologne, Florence, Leiden, Linnaeus, Nantes, and Semmelweis (Budapest) form the “European University for Well-Being”. Through top-level education and research and its wide range of diverse institutional profiles, this alliance will help to drive transformation to support individual, social and environmental well-being in a global setting. EUniWell unites 244,000 students and 36,500 staff members.

EUniWell has established a network with 102 associated partners including the seven city councils as well as numerous academic institutions, educational, cultural, and health organizations and companies who support EUniWell’s vision and mission. EUniWell has identified four key areas for research and teaching, closely linked to UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in which the partner universities have strong expertise and which, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, have gained additional urgency:

Well-Being & Health (SDG 3, Good Health & Well-Being)

Individual & Social Well-Being (SDG 16, Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions)

Environment, Urbanity & Well-Being (SDG 11, Sustainable Cities & Communities)

Teacher Education (SDG 4, Quality Education)
