EUniWell’s inaugural International Policy Commission event will be chaired by Stefano Manservisi, former Director-General of the European Commission’s Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development.

The European University for Well-Being, EUniWell, joins the Universities of Birmingham, Cologne, Florence, Leiden, Linnaeus, Nantes and Semmelweis.

As part of its mission to define how a modern, civic and entrepreneurial university can support social and individual well-being in a global setting, EUniWell Policy Commissions will bring leading figures from the public, private and third sectors together with EUniWell academics to discuss and generate new thinking on well-being issues of global, national, local, and civic concern.
EUniWell’s inaugural Policy Commission will address Covid-19, as the challenges that the pandemic poses to well-being on an individual, social, and global scale give EUniWell’s mission new urgency. In our opening panel discussion, Stefano Manservisi will discuss key challenges and responses with experts from EUniWell partner universities. The four panelists in this opening discussion are:
  • Judith Barth, elected EUniWell Chief Student Officer from the University of Cologne;
  • Professor Matthew Broome, Professor in Psychiatry and Youth Mental Health, and Director of the Institute for Mental Health (IMH) at the University of Birmingham;
  • Professor Arnold Tukker, Professor of Industrial Ecology and Director of the Institute of Environmental Sciences at Leiden University;
  • and Professor Christiane Woopen, Professor of Ethics and Theory of Medicine, and Head of the Center for Ethics, Rights, Economics, and Social Sciences of Health (ceres) at the University of Cologne.
