Warwick across Europe

We play an active role in European higher education, research and innovation, and are proud to be a founding member of the EUTOPIA European University alliance. In 2022, the European Commission renewed EUTOPIA’s funding, providing a further €14.3 million for EUTOPIA to continue developing a new model for Higher Education in Europe.

Through our membership of prestigious European networks, including The Guild of European Research Intensive Universities, Science|Business and Friends of Europe, we extend our influence within higher education, research, policy and industry across Europe.
