  •  Monday 12th April is all about inclusion, and everyone is welcome. We start the EUTOPIA Week journey with our opening ceremony from 10:00am – 11:00am. In the afternoon, we’ll talk about inclusion in higher education and adapting the system to the students.
  • Tuesday 13th April is all about education. In the morning, you can learn about EUTOPIA’s innovative education model. In the afternoon, the EUTOPIA student forum will discuss the student vision for EUTOPIA; if you are a student, this is for you. Tuesday afternoon is the first of two half-day workshops on university autonomy and integrity, and is part of a regional collaboration between EUTOPIA and institutions in the Western Balkans. The second session will be on Wednesday morning.
  • Wednesday 14th April highlights local and global cooperation. Are you a student and wonder why you should be a part of EUTOPIA? Then come to a lively roundtable between students and professionals who will explore the benefits and synergies international networks such as EUTOPIA can provide. Is digitization of the societal role of journalism an example of creative destruction, or just destruction? This is the question being raised in Wednesday’s afternoon session.
  • Thursday 15th April puts research in focus. We’ll be taking up links between education and research and have two sessions related to sustainability issues. Are you a researcher and wonder what the EUTOPIA partnership network may have to offer you? Then come to our afternoon session for researchers to learn about opportunities available through EUTOPIA.

Most of our sessions include a mix of students, academics and non-academics in a variety of roles. Some of the sessions mentioned are being organised or led by students. Throughout the week, you’ll also see that EUTOPIA’s collaborations extend beyond the academic world, and even beyond Europe.

Photo Competition

Most of you are probably still working or studying from home. You might look out of the same window every day. But what do you see?

What you see out of your window might not seem that different or unusual to you. For someone else, it might be. Or maybe the similarities of what we see, no matter where in the world we are, help us see the things we have in common.

To celebrate EUTOPIA Week Spring 2021, we’d like you to snap a picture of your everyday life: of the street where you live, what you see on your way to buy a pint of milk when you take your dog for a walk or a glimpse from your window before you switch on the computer in the morning. We’d love to experience it with you, if only in a photograph. Let others take a visual journey to the places that make us EUTOPIA.

While there will be some nice prizes, this isn’t a contest to find the most stylish or professional photo or the grammatically perfect write-up. We’re looking quite simply for photos that capture what people see outside these days, photos representing EUTOPIA’s European and global partners taking part in EUTOPIA Week Spring 2021.

Let others get a look outside by sending your photo to eutopia@gu.se before 4 pm (GMT) / 5 pm (CET) on Thursday 15 April.

Please include your name, where you are and one to two sentences about your photo. The winners will be announced on the last day of EUTOPIA Week Spring 2021, Friday 16 April. You do not need to be present and please note that you by sending in your photo, agree to let EUTOPIA use, share, modify, and/or adapt your image.
