The Rectors of the eight European EUniWell universities met in July in Leiden. During the meeting they discussed the future of this alliance that focuses on joint research and education in the area of health.
Hester Bijl, Rector of Leiden University, opened the third Assembly of Rectors by reflecting on the first pilot phase of the project. 'There can be no doubt that we have been through a challenging period. The EUniWell project was launched during a pandemic. Even so, we have together built on the foundations, we have implemented our programme and learned from the challenges we met along the way.'
