Save the date - April 12-16

The University of Gothenburg is looking forward to hosting the third EUTOPIA Week online from 12-16 April 2021. The week will be packed with workshops and seminars on a wide range of topics, relevant to students, staff and researchers within the alliance and beyond. There will also be some great networking opportunities for everyone, and even a few fun activities planned.

EUTOPIA Week 12-16 April 2021

Organized by The University of Gothenburg

Outline of the main schedule

Each day is loosely built around a theme, and each theme is a building block of the EUTOPIA Alliance. Except for Friday, the sessions described here are open to anyone interested.

Monday the 12th

Is all about inclusion, and everyone is welcome. We start the EUTOPIA Week journey with our opening ceremony from 11:00am - 12:00 noon CET. In the afternoon, we'll talk about inclusion in higher education and adapting the system to the students.

Tuesday the 13th

Is all about education. In the morning, you can learn about EUTOPIA's innovative education model. In the afternoon, the EUTOPIA student forum will discuss the student vision for EUTOPIA; if you are a student, this is for you.

Tuesday afternoon is the first of two half-day workshops on university autonomy and integrity, and is part of a regional collaboration between EUTOPIA and institutions in the Western Balkans. The second session will be on Wednesday morning.

Wednesday the 14th

Highlights local and global cooperation. Are you a student and wonder why you should be a part of EUTOPIA? Then come to a lively roundtable between students and professionals who will explore the benefits and synergies international networks such as EUTOPIA can provide.

Is digitization of the societal role of journalism an example of creative destruction, or just destruction? This is the question being raised in Wednesday's afternoon session.

Thursday the 15th

Puts research in focus. We'll be taking up links between education and research and have two sessions related to sustainability issues.

Are you a researcher and wonder what the EUTOPIA partnership network may have to offer you? Then come to our afternoon session for researchers to learn about opportunities available through EUTOPIA.

Participants - students and collaborations

Most of our sessions include a mix of students, academics and non-academics in a variety of roles. Some of the sessions mentioned are being organised or led by students. Throughout the week, you'll also see that EUTOPIA's collaborations extend beyond the academic world, and even beyond Europe.
