In several meetings, both physical and online, more than 350 researchers, administrators and students from the EUniWell community prepared our ambitious application. Working with utmost dedication, we formulated our vision for the European University for Well-Being and created new programmes, structures and measures for the future of European higher education. During the application preparation, we experienced a new level of co-creation and cooperation across our 7 universities, 7 countries and countless research and administration units. Together we will continue our work to improve the well-being of Europeans and their global neighbours, both within and beyond the sphere of higher education. Based on the extensive cooperation within EUniWell and in collaboration with our more than 100 associated partners, we will strive for a better Europe now and in the future.
