Eutopia-SIF fellows

The third call for applications to the EUTOPIA Science and Innovation Fellowship will be open until 15th December 2022. The Fellowship provides two years of funding for early career researchers and gives them the opportunity to develop their research at two EUTOPIA universities (co-hosts), with a placement with an external partner institution.

The Fellowship aims to foster entrepreneurial spirit, tangible research impact and innovation and offers rich training, career guidance and academic supervision.The programme focuses on five key research areas: materials engineering; data & intelligence; health; sustainability; welfare & inclusion.

At Warwick successful applicants are based at the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) and will develop their independent research profiles and undertake training to help establish an academic career. Professor Mohan Balasubramanian, Professor at Warwick Medical School and Director of the Institute of Advanced Study at the University of Warwick said:

“We’re really excited to be at the centre of such a program, working to transform our understanding of the most pressing challenges faced globally, and collaborating with business partners to develop sustainable strategies. Our ability to address these research problems is substantially enhanced by working with EUTOPIA colleagues. The new Fellows will play a key role in unlocking this synergy for the Alliance.”

EUTOPIA, a community of European universities striving to address global and regional challenges, and to develop a new form of open, inclusive, innovative higher education, is investing €10.2 million to train early career researchers. Launched in 2020, EUTOPIA-SIF will train 76 post-doctoral researchers over four calls, contributing significantly to the next generation of science and innovation leaders in Europe.

EUTOPIA-SIF is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program under the Marie Sklodowska Curie COFUND scheme (Grant agreement 945380) and is co-funded by the founder universities of the EUTOPIA Alliance. These six universities are eligible to host or co-host SIF fellows: Vrije Universiteit Brussel, CY Cergy Paris UniversityLink opens in a new window, University of GothenburgLink opens in a new window, University of LjubljanaLink opens in a new window, Pompeu Fabra University-BarcelonaLink opens in a new window, The University of WarwickLink opens in a new window.
