The fifth EUTOPIA Week took place at the Vrije Universiteit in Brussel (Belgium) between June 27 and July 1, 2022. More than 70 events took place within this EUTOPIA Week: from public presentations of project outputs and good practices, symposiums, workshops and seminars for research and administrative staff, as well as numerous events for students. The event was attended by more than 300 participants, including a delegation from the University of Ljubljana.

EUTOPIA is a teaching and research community of ten European universities, established with the aim of actively building and reshaping the European Higher Education Area. The aim of the project is to promote greater mobility and inclusion, strengthen the links between teaching, research and innovation, and above all, to enable students to play an active role in identifying and addressing global challenges through innovative and collaborative learning practices.

In addition to the meetings, reserved for discussing and building the future and strategy of EUTOPIA, many other events open to the general public also took place. Among others, results and outputs in the area of social inclusion were presented, with the University of Ljubljana also actively participating as the lead of the working group for social and regional inclusion. The audience had the opportunity to discuss the idea of ​​inclusion, while gaining insight into the significance of inclusive practices at each partner university. The participants were also invited to watch a movie focusing on inclusion, The man who sold his skin.

Gatherings, forums and showcasing of good practices were prepared for the students of all ten universities, which offered the participants a great opportunity to get to know each other, as well as different countries and universities. Cultural events were organized where participants got to know the city of Brussels and its history, and there was plenty of opportunities for networking.

The next, last EUTOPIA Week will take place between November 21 to 25, 2022 in Ljubljana, where we will celebrate the achievements of the EUTOPIA pilot project, EUTOPIA2050 - Transforming to an Open Inclusive Academy for 2050.
