When it comes to research, it has a central part in the educational experience of students at universities. While conducting research, students can find answers to pending questions, fill gaps in knowledge and gain valuable insight into their particular field. Their developed expertise can play a leading role in improving civil society.

The EUTOPIA Student Think Tank (EUSTT) is dedicated to building a platform to share knowledge and incubate new ideas to contribute to the progress of society. Run by a highly diversified group of student researchers, it allows students to publish their works and recommendations. It also offers skill-training to engage the student community in policy-shaping and policy-making processes to create positive impacts in society. The importance of such an initiative stems from the central role of education in one’s life by making knowledge available to everyone.

Among the members of the EUSTT are several UPF students, linked to various degrees:

  • Pol Villaverde, degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, is the general coordinator
  • María Delgado i Garcia, degree in Political Science and Administration and in Economics, editor-in-chief
  • Mireia Romero Dorchín, degree in Applied Languages, editor
  • Xavier Trilla, degree in International Business and Marketing (ESCI-UPF), director of communication
  • Nil Codina, degree in Global Studies, Deputy Director of Communication

“The society we live in is more and more polluted by fake news and misinformation. Research is often misunderstood and seen as something old-fashioned. Considering that context, I think it’s essential for students to speak their mind. They have to seize the opportunity to contribute to research, to improve our world, and to make it intelligible to civil society. The EUSTT is the best place to give them a space to do so.” Marie Marchand, President of the EUTOPIA Student Council.
