This is EUTOPIA

EUTOPIA is an ambitious alliance of six like-minded European universities. EUTOPIA’s long-term mission is to build a unique and daring alliance of transformative and engaged institutions.

EUTOPIA students, researchers and staff are currently working together to build a new academic model, reflecting an open and united Europe, respectful of all citizens and the environment. The alliance works together with its associate and global partners to reach its aims. 

EUTOPIA provides opportunities for students and staff alike, from undergraduate through post doc, and for researchers, teachers, technical and administrative staff.  

Efforts are already underway to produce challenge-driven research and teaching, prepare empowered European graduates, champion regional and international involvement, and support diversity, inclusivity and widening citizenship.
