4 Key Principles

Four Key Principles

EUTOPIA is a challenge-led, student-centered, inclusive alliance of entrepreneurial, change-focused universities. In conjunction with our partners and collaborators, EUTOPIA is characterized by these four key principles:

Geared towards the challenges of the future: Challenge-led

Our alliance is challenge-driven 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 provides transformative and open learning opportunities, and extended horizons of expectation and ability, both across Europe and throughout the world.

Committed to the principles of openness and inclusion

Our alliance fosters and supports 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.

Service to society

Our alliance builds 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.
