Warwick has a strong history of engagement in Europe and we are committed to supporting the networking and partnership-building activities of our teaching and research staff. As a founding member of the Guild of European Research Intensive Universities, Warwick is proud to be working with 19 of Europe’s most distinguished universities to give a voice to our institutions. Over 750 staff and 2,600+ students from EU countries already contribute to the excellence of our research, teaching, learning and to cultural diversity on our campus.
Alongside our five European partners, Warwick has recently launched EUTOPIA, a European alliance of universities working closely together to address global challenges through collaborative research, increased mobility of students and staff, and shared innovations which serve the wider public in all of Europe’s regions.
“Europe-wide research and teaching collaboration has helped transform the lives not just of our students and researchers, it has underpinned jobs, and spurred innovation and advances in health, manufacturing, culture and so much more. Politicians in and out of office in every country in Europe are still deliberating how the UK can still be part of that in future but we can’t afford simply to wait for that to be fully resolved. We chose to act now not just to show our commitment to work together in future but to begin work on a range of activities that delivers on such a commitment."
