The European University of Well-Being – EUniWell – has come together in response to the Council of the European Union’s invitation for member states to pursue a horizontal, cross-sectoral, knowledge-based approach to advance the ‘Economy of Wellbeing’ (24 October 2019).
EUniWell unites 7 diverse universities and 102 associate partners drawn from 7 distinct regions of Europe. It presents an action-oriented response to well-being, grounded in research expertise, educational leadership and civic engagement to meet the challenge set out by the Council of the European Union and the OECD.
EUniWell will take an integrated system-thinking approach to deliver a meaningful and sustainable step-change to the well-being of our institutions, staff, students, and societies. In partnership with societal stakeholders, and working across the knowledge-education-innovation axis, EUniWell will play a critical, intermediary role in shaping research-based policy and pedagogy to inform decision-making, underpin skills development, and realize a measurable impact on European citizens’ quality of life.
This implies a change of frameworks, cultures and mindsets. To achieve this change, we
Our core mission is to understand, improve, measure, and rebalance the well-being of individuals, our own community, and society as a whole based on our joint values – democratic, inclusive, diverse, research and challenge-based, inter- and transdisciplinary, entrepreneurial, and co-creational.
