Apply for the European Students Assembly 2024, organised by the European Universities Committee
The European Student Assembly (ESA) is a grassroots project that gathers each year more than 230 students from most European University Alliances (EUA) to debate current issues, draft political recommendations for the future of Europe and advocate them among stakeholders and decision makers. One of the flagship projects of the European Universities Community (EUC), the ESA is entirely designed and implemented by a steering committee composed of students and academic and non academic staff members from different higher education institutions.
- Voicing the opinion of EUA students from different countries, backgrounds, fields and levels of study, all recruited for their engagement and motivation.
- Fostering the participation of students within EUAs while reinforcing collaboration between them and increasing the impact and visibility of the EUA initiative.
- Advocating deliberative processes as a way to regenerate European democracy and to reduce the gap between citizens and decision makers.
- Encourage students to get involved in European politics at local, national and European level and increase their participation in European democratic processes.
From January to April 2024, selected students will work remotely to deepen their understanding of a chosen topic and produce a collection of recommendations before meeting with their peers for a 3-day event in Strasbourg from 10-12 April to propose concrete solutions.
Selected students will have their travel costs from European countries covered by NeurotechEU.
The application deadline is 5 November 2023.
