ESA is actively involved in KA 1 projects with Intra-European mobility and with Mobility project to Partner countries but ESA has also participated to a KA 2 project during 3 years (2014-2017). Those projects take entirely part in ESA’s international strategy.


ESA is granted by the Erasmus+ Charter (Charte Erasmus+ to download) and its Erasmus+ code is F ANGERS08.

ESA is one of the members of the FESIA, a network of 4 French Engineering Higher Institutes specialized in Life Sciences, Agricultures, Food Processing and Environment made of ISA Lille, ISARA Lyon and Purpan Toulouse.

Since 2004, ESA is managing Europeans mobility for the 4 members of the FESIA network. ESA has obtained the consortium accreditation with the new program Erasmus+ 2014-2020. This consortium allows the 4 members answering the common ambition of recognition and visibility at the international scale and their essential common goals:

  • To reach the critical size allowing the proper visibility for our european partners
  • To mutualize the network of partner universities and training offers in order to guarantee a wider offer of destinations for students and maintain the balance of mobility in and out.
  • To enhance the available resources by a common financial and administrative management centralized at ESA Angers.

The consortium manages 3 kind of mobility:

  • Academic mobility
  • Staff and teachers mobility
  • Internship mobility for students from 2 members of the consortium (ISA Lille and ESA Angers)



ESA, CAH Dronten (Netherlands), USAMV (Romania) and Lactalis (France) have led a European ERASMUS+ KA2 Strategic Partnership program in order to answer the specific training needs of the European dairy sector. Specifically, the LADMEC program – Livestock and Dairy Management for Emerging Countries – aims to train European dairy farming professionals  to work in emerging countries  that have neither  the same technical benchmarks, economic contexts or the same organization as Europe.

This special program has generated the creation of an online refresher course for the participants of the program.  The course consists of input on the following topics:

A languages lexicon in 6 different languages has also been created to allow participants’ access to vocabulary specific to the dairy sector.




The Erasmus+ International Mobility Project of Credits (MIC) between ESA and its partner Seifullin Kazakh Agro Technical University, Astana in Kazakhstan has been selected at the end of May 2017 among 79 accepted projects in France (out of 159 submitted projects).

Thus, between June 1st 2017 and July 31st 2019, 16 students from Kazakhstan students specialized in food processing, economy and animal productions will come to study at ESA and teachers’ exchanges will be organized during this period.

The European Commission will entirely finance the mobility.
