Objective

The EUTOPIA Science and Innovation Fellowships program is an ambitious initiative to train young research leaders. This strategic program is launched by the EUTOPIA Alliance, a network of six universities that has recently been awarded an Erasmus+ ‘European Universities’ pilot project. It brings together Université Paris Seine, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Goeteborgs Universitet, Univerza v Ljubljani and University of Warwick, who have joined forces to provide fellows with an innovation-driven world-class research eco-system.
The program focuses on 5 interdisciplinary Key Research Areas:
1- Materials engineering;
2- Data & Intelligence;
3- Health;
4- Sustainability;
5- Welfare & Inclusion.
The program offers 76 two-years post-doctoral fellowships over five years and aims to promote the research potential and career perspective of outstanding, innovative young researchers. Fellows are offered full freedom to pursue their research project whilst benefiting from expert academic supervision, state-of-the art research infrastructure and being part of an interdisciplinary research community. The program offers career mentoring; and promotes transferable skills, innovation and entrepreneurship awareness and secondment with partners. While letting fellows choose their hosting university, the program will create a transnational community of researchers through joint initiatives such as yearly symposia, a strong network, etc. International mobility, both among EUTOPIA members and towards international academic institutions will be encouraged. Université Paris Seine will manage the program on behalf of the EUTOPIA Alliance. The program will rest on a unified governance, a joint, high standard, selection procedure, and resource sharing. In addition, more than 45 companies, local authorities and non-profit organizations who are ready to train or host some researchers on secondments already support the program.
