About

A core group of like-minded universities for whom change is not simply the output from our alliance, but the driving force that brings us together.

EUTOPIA is a challenge-led, student-centred, place-based, inclusive alliance of entrepreneurial, change focused universities.

In conjunction with our partners and collaborators, EUTOPIA will be characterised by four key principles:

Geared towards the challenges of the future

Our alliance will be challenge-drive to prepare students and staff as European citizens and lifelong learners who care and act for the future of the planet and humanity.

Student-centred and student-empowering

Our alliance will provide transformative and open learning opportunities, and extended horizons of expectation and ability, both across Europe and throughout the world.

Attentive to the plurality, potentiality and international pre-eminence of Europe’s regions

Our alliance will build on its place-making strengths, connecting cultures and contexts in order to enhance European capability and creativity, and support the international pre-eminence of European innovation and influence.

Committed to the principles of openness and inclusion

Our alliance will foster and support knowledge co-creation, by building open resources and collaborative platforms, endorsing open science agendas, and sponsoring the access, mobility and inclusivity mechanisms that liberate our intellectual and social potential.
