Would you like to change the future? We invite you to register for the GLOCAL CHALLENGES course, which aims to develop projects and find solutions to real society problems and concerns. This will be done from a dual perspective, combining local and global approaches and with the methodologies usually applied in the EC. All framed in the Open Innovation Challenge, one of the most powerful projects within EUTOPIA!

Cross borders with your own project!

The team selected will travel to Gothenburg, a pioneer in organizing Hackathons, during the first trimester  of the 2021–2022 academic year, to participate in the Eutopia Challenge Hackathon and will compete against the other selected teams from the EUTOPIA alliance’s universities. Three teams will then be chosen to go on to compete for the Final Prize at the University of Warwick, UK.

If your project wins, you will receive the funds to develop it in one of our incubators or in one of the creation spaces of the Alliance’s universities and make it reality! Can you imagine working on your proposal in Paris, Gothenburg, Brussels, Ljubljana or the United Kingdom?
