EUniWell Policy Commission: coronavirus

Wednesday 17 June 2020

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 is pleased to launch a series of International Policy Commissions. The first of these will be chaired by Stefano Manservisi, former Director-General of the European Commission’s Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development.

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.

Our opening panel discussion will take place on 17 June from 2.00 to 3.30 p.m. (CEST):

Well-Being in a Covid World

The challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic poses to well-being give EUniWell’s mission – to understand, measure, rebalance and improve the well-being of individuals, communities, and society – new urgency. In this panel discussion, Stefano Manservisi will discuss key challenges and responses with experts from EUniWell partner universities. Panelists are Judith Barth (University of Cologne), Matthew Broome (University of Birmingham), Arnold Tukker (Leiden University) and Christiane Woopen (University of Cologne).
