Abstract

All the European Countries are concerned about Sustainable Development Goals and the Agenda 2030 formulated by ONU and imposed globally. As an example, for the Virtual Institute „Good Health and Well-being” from the European campus of City-Universities project, (www.ec2u.eu)the central topic of analysis is the third objective: „Ensuring Good Health and Well-being for All". Taking advantage of the structure and functionalities of this project of University Alliances (EC2U), we tried in this article to make a comparative analysis between the seven member countries from the perspective of the targets of the third objective of sustainable development. The comparative results show accents, similarities and differences; highlight the starting points for further, in-depth analysis for the development of policies and measures.
