The strategic objectives of BENDIt-EU are:

Raise awareness of academic burnout by widely providing up-to-date, evidence-based information to identify, prevent and most effectively intervene on academic burnout;

Improving the well-being of students in medical and related fields who are at risk of burnout or who suffer from mild, moderate and severe forms of burnout;

Improving the skills of staff working in academic counselling services that directly address cases of academic burnout;

Provide recommendations to the management of the universities involved on the development of rules and regulations to address and prevent academic burnout.
