The University of Florence, together with six other European universities, has established the European University for well-being (EUniWell). EUniWell is one of the consortia selected as part of the call of the European Commission "European Universities", launched with the aim of establishing networks of universities that will share study and research programs, making the most of the possible synergies and that will thus give life to the European universities of the future.

In addition to Unifi, the universities of Birmingham (England), Cologne (Germany), Leiden (Netherlands), Linnaeus (Sweden), Nantes (France) and Semmelweis (Hungary) are also part of the consortium, with a total of 244,000 students, 36,500 staff members and 102 partners from the institutions and businesses of the seven European countries.
The main areas of action identified for collaboration are: Health, individual and social well-being, the environment and quality of life, the promotion of European identity, teacher training and the promotion of attractiveness of European university institutes.
