The Young Leaders Academy is launched!

The EUTOPIA Young Leaders Academy is a strategic initiative launched by the six original members of the EUTOPIA alliance, Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium); CY Cergy Paris Université (France); University of Gothenburg (Sweden); University of Ljubljana (Slovenia); Pompeu Fabra University Barcelona (Spain); and The University of Warwick (United Kingdom).

On November 25 et 26, 2021, during the EUTOPIA Week hosted by the Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona, the Young Leaders Academy was launched with a successful kick-off event!

Building on the EUTOPIA Alliance ecosystem, the Young Leaders Academy aims at creating a network of high potential, early to mid-career researchers, coming from all EUTOPIA partner universities. Members of the Academy will constitute a community of promising independent research leaders at the scale of the alliance, sharing and promoting European values and the EUTOPIA vision of an interconnected academic environment.

The Academy is designed to contribute to the European Research and Innovation Area by:

  • Strengthening Europe’s human capital base by enhancing the research potential and career perspective of young researchers
  • Supporting disruptive research to achieve knowledge breakthroughs in major research areas and innovation-intensive domains.
  • Reinforcing the link between academic research and societal stakeholders to promote knowledge and technology transfers and innovation.
  • Supporting the emergence of a European University network by deepening the integration of the knowledge and innovation ecosystem of the EUTOPIA Alliance.
