Recent activities


The objective of the Researcher Mobility Program is to support research visits of EUTOPIA researchers across EUTOPIA partner universities, in order to foster research collaborations and to allow the sharing of expertise and infrastructures and the development of joint research activities in line with EUTOPIA’s mission to promote a connected and inclusive academic community, addressing global and local challenges and advancing excellence and inclusion.

The program will allow each EUTOPIA university to finance a minimum of 4 research mobility projects, for a total of 24 research visits over the duration of the EUTOPIA 2050 project.

Exploring DNA structures, Modeling language learning in robots, Investigating the role of dance in post-colonial imaginaries, Treating lung cancer, Understanding social cohesion or the influence of education on health, Upcycling waste geomaterials: just a few examples of the subjects that will be researched by this year’s cohort of Eutopia PhD Students. The EUTOPIA PhD co-tutelle programme, now in its third year, is a flagship initiative that funds excellent research projects with global impact and provides exciting joint doctoral training opportunities. Projects are submitted by pairs of researchers belonging to EUTOPIA’s different institutions and research centers. Successful applicants co-supervise PhD candidates under a bilateral co-tutelle agreement. In addition to receiving a scholarship, PhD candidates enrolled in the programme benefit from experiencing two world-class research environments and having access to common training and scientific exchange activities.

EUTOPIA Research and Innovation Fellowships - First Call (2020-2021)
The aim of the EUTOPIA-SIF programme is to enhance the research potential and career perspectives of outstanding young researchers from around the world.
EUTOPIA-SIF fellowships offer the opportunity to high-profile young researchers to develop their own research project in the stimulating academic environment of the EUTOPIA Alliance. Extensive research mobility is integral to the fellowships with two compulsory secondment periods: one at another EUTOPIA university (co-host university) and one with an external academic or non-academic partner institution with the aim of fostering the fellows’ entrepreneurial spirit, tangible research impact and innovation. Furthermore, fellows will access a rich training programme, career guidance and academic supervision.
