Consortium-related news 

We are pleased to announce that the EUTOPIA’s Science & Innovation Postdoctoral Fellowships Programme (EUTOPIA-SIF) was selected under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND Action from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Framework Programme.   

The project is coordinated by CY Cergy Paris Université for the EUTOPIA alliance. The first call for applications will be published in the fall of 2020. Fellows will be offered full freedom to pursue their research project while benefiting from expert supervision and state-of-the-art research infrastructure.  

From 29th to 31st of January, representants from all EUTOPIA partners met in Ljubljana for the official Kick-off meeting of the project. All Work Packages were discussed as well as the overall management of the project. Please find through this link some pictures of the event, please do notice that the link will expire in 7 days.  

The EUTOPIA alliance continues to shape its educational model. After selecting the first EUTOPIA labelled learning units, we now start the process of the so-called learning circles. These will support the professors responsible for the EUTOPIA labelled units in reaching out towards EUTOPIA colleagues and evolve towards cross institutional learning communities.  

On February 20th and 21st, the teachers of the 6 first learning units will gather for the first time in a seminar organized on the Warwick campus. They will be able to share experiences and identify their needs for achieving connectivity within EUTOPIA. Their input will provide the EUTOPIA curriculum team with the information needed for setting up a full-fledged learning circle later in spring.
