Students within EUTOPIA


The University of Gothenburg is a member of the European University alliance EUTOPIA. Together with nine other higher education institutions, there is a shared vision of creating a strong alliance with free movement for students, researchers, teachers and other staff.

What is EUTOPIA?

EUTOPIA is a university alliance consisting of ten European universities. The alliance aims to prepare European youth for the local and global challenges of the future. Sustainability, inclusion, external collaboration, and international cooperation are the focus for both education and research, and students’ input and influence are key.

EUTOPIA has received EU funding to help the network carry out a variety of pilot projects. In the long run, these projects are expected to contribute to the creation of a new model for higher education in Europe. As part of EUTOPIA, the University of Gothenburg is well-positioned to influence and shape the future and design of higher education.

For teachers and researchers

EUTOPIA's teacher collaborations: Learning Units

Since the EUTOPIA project began in 2019, 18 courses at the universities within the alliance have been gradually selected to become "Learning Units". This means that teachers at the various  universities together develop their existing courses and increase collaboration with colleagues who hold similar courses. For example, it can be about joint collaboration exercises for students and the opportunity to share and exchange guest lectures with each other.
