From Erasmus to Erasmus+ : A story of 30 years

Mon, 25/09/2017


Celebration from October 9th to 14th at the ENS de Lyon for the 30th anniversary of Erasmus+.

2017 marks the 30th anniversary or the Erasmus+ programme - a milestone for Europe!
An enduring European success story, Erasmus+ is a cultural phenomenon that has been credited with fostering a pan-European identity. Established in 1987 as a student exchange programme, it has since given 9 million the chance to live abroad. Over the years, the programme has continuously grown, bringing all the EU's schemes for education, training, youth and sport mobility under one banner.
The current programme, running from 2014 to 2020, is set to provide mobility opportunities to over 4 million people.
In celebration of this momentous occasion, many events are organised all over Europe.
Program at the ENS de Lyon:
  • Monday 9th: polyglot café
  • Tuesday 10th / Thursday 12th: information on mobility opportunities for students
  • Friday 13th: Special lunch (CROUS)
Other events are organised by the Université de Lyon all week long: program (in French)
