NOVA will attend the first in person EUTOPIA Week

The EUTOPIA Week, which will take place from 22 to 26 November in Barcelona, will be the first held in person after the pandemic traveling restrictions.

Led by Pompeu Fabra University (UPF), EUTOPIA Week Barcelona will be attended by all the EUTOPIA alliance rectors, including the Rector of NOVA, Professor João Sàágua, who will be attending the event along with the Vice Rector, Professor João Amaro de Matos, and other EUTOPIA team members of the University.

EUTOPIA Week will focus on Planetary Wellbeing, a very topical project after the recent celebration of COP26. In addition, and given the radical transformation that not only higher education is experiencing, but society in general, it will be discussed what the future of universities will be like and how they fit into the European Commission’s proposal for European Universities.

EUTOPIA Week Barcelona will become the perfect setting to address issues such as research, mobility and inclusion and key events will include presentations on great academic opportunities for students and researchers, related to both mobility agreements and the TRAIN initiative, which offers a shared collaboration framework in research policies and innovation of member universities.

EUTOPIA partners will be sharing ideas for building the universities of tomorrow for the new generations, presenting new initiatives related to the present and future of the alliance. The programme will include round tables, cultural activities, workshops and several work sessions.

In this way, and thanks to the joint work, effort and collaboration of EUTOPIA teams, experts, students and several local entities, the programme will invite both strategic reflection and practical application of initiatives. The open sessions are designed for all members of the alliance university communities and can be followed in streaming.
