  • To lead regional and international involvement
  • To support diversity, inclusivity and widening citizenship

 

What is a European University?

In 2019, our network presented a pilot project to build a new model of higher education in Europe as part of the European Universities initiative. The project was one of seventeen chosen to design, from various perspectives, a proposal for a new European University model, based on the principles of diversity, inclusion and citizenship in the broadest sense. A core part of the project is student involvement. At EUTOPIA we need your collaboration to design the project! If you want to be a EUTOPIA ambassador, please contact us to join!
