EUTOPIA invests €10.2m in young researchers tackling real-world challenges

Education Information

EUTOPIA — a community of six European campuses striving to address global and regional challenges, and to develop a new form of open, inclusive, innovative higher education — is to invest €10.2 million to train early career researchers in fields such as data, health, welfare, and sustainability. The EUTOPIA Science & Innovation Postdoctoral Fellowships Programme (EUTOPIA-SIF) has been awarded €5.6 million by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Framework Programme, with that amount boosted by a further €4.6 million from EUTOPIA members.

EUTOPIA-SIF will train a cohort of 76 post-doctoral researchers over five years, to be part of the future generation of science and innovation leaders in Europe — with internationally excellent collaborative research and teaching, and working hand in hand with local government, business and organisations.

The programme will see the researchers work research areas to help tackle real-world challenges like sustainable materials, water and the environment, antimicrobial resistance, cancer and reproductive health, the impact of big data and artificial intelligence, and ethical issues and inequality.

EUTOPIA-SIF will develop new projects with collaborators across the alliance: Vrije Universiteit Brussel, CY Cergy Paris Université, University of Gothenburg, University of Ljubljana, Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona and the University of Warwick.


More than 45 companies, local authorities and non-profit organizations will train or host researchers on secondments to support the programme. The programme is led by another founding member of EUTOPIA, CY Cergy Paris Université.
