EUTOPIA – a European University



EUTOPIA is an ambitious alliance of 10 like-minded universities ready to reinvent themselves: the Babeș-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca (Romania), the Vrije Universiteit Brussels (Belgium), the Ca'Foscari University of Venice (Italy), CY Cergy Paris Université (France), the Technische Universität Dresden (Germany), the University of Gothenburg (Sweden), the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), the NOVA University Lisbon (Portugal), the University of Pompeu Fabra (Spain) and the University of Warwick (United Kingdom). Together, these 10 pioneers join forces to build the university of the future.

Each university holds several campuses deeply related to their territories. They have built solid ties with their communities, institutional structures, and local companies. 

EUTOPIA students, researchers, and staff work together to build a new academic model, reflecting an open and a united Europe, respectful of the citizens and the environment. 

The mission of EUTOPIA is to build in the long-term a unique and daring alliance of transformative and engaged institutions.
