EUSTT

About us

The EUTOPIA Student Think Tank is a platform for giving voice to European students’ shared knowledge.

Inclusiveness and collaboration
We aim to open up new ideas and thoughts through publishing students’ research in a collaborative, diverse, and inclusive environment.

Social progress
The EUSTT is non-religious and non-partisan, and advocates social equity, education and cooperation between students and universities as a source of progress.

Student-centred
Empowering students is at the heart of our activity, all the way from Bachelor’s to PhD. We work to foster the role of students in decision-making.

Multi, inter and transdisciplinary
Our focus is in building bridges across disciplines, because complex problems require complex solutions. We encourage collaboration among researchers.

About the EUTOPIA Alliance

The EUSTT is a student-led initiative created out of the determination of the EUTOPIA Student Council to further connect the university communities across the Alliance. So what is, then, the EUTOPIA?

The EUTOPIA European University (EEU) alliance brings together the operations and intentions of ten regionally and nationally distinct European universities. EUTOPIA’s collective aims to become by 2025 an open, multicultural, confederated operation of connected campuses that facilitates both free movements for all its members, whether staff or students, open cooperation and vigorous participation for all the citizens of its associated communities. In June 2019, the EEU alliance was chosen as one of the initial 17 winning projects of the new European Universities Initiative competitive call launched by the European Commission to build a European Higher Education Area.
