Funding Opportunities


Formed by the University of Warwick, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the University of Gothenburg, CY Cergy Paris University, the University Pompeu Fabra - Barcelona and the University of Ljubljana, the EUTOPIA alliance is committed to delivering open, innovative and inclusive higher education in Europe.

The six partners are committed to modernise education and training, and provide 21st century skills and competencies in all of Europe’s regions. We are working together to develop international opportunities for our staff and students.

EUTOPIA Knowledge Bazaar

The Warwick Institute of Engagement (WIE) and the EUTOPIA alliance are seeking research projects to join the EUTOPIA Knowledge Bazaar. 

The EUTOPIA Knowledge Bazaar is a virtual space where ideas take shape. An evocative meeting point for art and science. A marketplace of knowledge open to society and devoted to promoting public engagement with the world-leading research carried out by the EUTOPIA universities. The Bazaar does not display research outcomes in a traditional way. It is a space of creation itself, where research is presented through experimental, creative, audio-visual formats. It invites the user to enter and browse among a myriad of images and sounds which divulge cutting-edge discoveries through innovative productions. 

In the lead up to the launch of the EUTOPIA Knowledge Bazaar in June 2022, we are inviting expressions of interest from researchers at Warwick who would like to join this new initiative. The call is open to all research staff from all disciplinary backgrounds. Projects must be interdisciplinary in nature, international in scope, and be at a stage where results are ready to be disseminated. Researchers should be interested in exploring new ways of engaging non-academic publics with their research results.  

Research projects that interact with another EUTOPIA partner (through a co-investigator, for example) are especially welcomed, although this is not essential.  

The Warwick Institute of Engagement and the EUTOPIA alliance will provide guidance, support and funding of up to £1500 to help three successful researchers/research teams to explore new approaches to public engagement.  

If you are interested, please submit a summary of your research project (maximum of 500 words), outlining how it meets the criteria outlined above to by 22nd November 2021.  

If you have questions and would like to discuss this opportunity further, feel free to contact Mike Haymes using the same email address.  

EUTOPIA Researcher Mobility Programme

 The Researcher Mobility Programme supports research visits of EUTOPIA researchers across EUTOPIA partner universities. The main objective of this program is to foster research collaborations and to allow the sharing of expertise and infrastructures and the development of joint research activities (e.g. common publications, PhD co-tutelles, joint applications for external research funds etc.), in line with EUTOPIA’s mission to promote a connected and inclusive academic community, addressing global and local challenges and advancing excellence and inclusion.

The program is developed as part of the EUTOPIA 2050 Erasmus+ project. It allows each EUTOPIA university to finance a minimum of 4 research mobility projects, for a total of 24 research visits over the duration of the EUTOPIA 2050 project.

All visits financed under the EUTOPIA Researcher Mobility Program should be project-led and allow the development and furthering of research collaborations between the researchers of the EUTOPIA Alliance. The program is open to all academic disciplines and topics.
