    EUTOPIA presents … EUTOPIA!

    What is EUTOPIA?

    EUTOPIA is an alliance of 6 likeminded universities ready to reinvent themselves: Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona, CY Cergy Paris Université, University of Warwick, University of Gothenburg, University of Ljubljana and of course our Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Together, these 6 pioneers valiantly tackle the immense challenge of building the university of the future.
    And construction works are well underway. The core of a future-proof university? Connected Learning and Knowledge Communities! These are interuniversity networks of staff, students and stakeholders engaging in cross-campus learning and teaching activities in close interaction with research agendas of the EUTOPIA partner universities. In short: Connected Learning and Knowledge Communities enable a unique university experience for students as well as for staff, in a participatory and co-created learning journey.
    So how can you get involved in this journey to the future? Glad you ask!
