The Erasmus Student Network

The ESN network (Erasmus Student Network) is an European network gathering associations of young people welcoming young people, initiated with the support of the European Commission in 1989. This network has been present in Lyon since 2006 with membership in the network of the association ESN CosmoLyon.

The network is present in more than 40 countries, mainly in Europe, and help associations welcoming young people during international studies. These associations share a similar purpose and values, the ESN network allows them to get to know each other, exchange ideas and good practices or even carry out ambitious projects together.

ESN network projects

The ESN network carries out various projects at the international level to improve the living conditions of mobile students on different themes: sport, inclusion, disability, youth engagement, etc.
