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.
KA103 – Erasmus+ Intra Europeans Mobility Projects
ESA is granted by the Erasmus+ Charter (Charte Erasmus+) and its Erasmus+ code is F ANGERS08.
ESA is one of the members of the France Agro3 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 France Agro3 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)
KA203 – Erasmus+ Stategic Partnership Program
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:
- Mammary gland : physiology and anatomy
- Milk composition and microbiology
- Physiology and anatomy of reproduction
- Basic economics

A languages lexicon in 6 different languages has also been created to allow participants’ access to vocabulary specific to the dairy sector.
KA107 – International Credit Mobility Erasmus+
Students and staff mobilities between France and Kazakhstan
Erasmus + Key Action 107 (KA107) encourages higher education mobility between Programme States and Partner Countries.
The Erasmus+ KA107 program between ESA and its partner Kazatu (Seifullin Kazakh Agro Technical University), Astana, Kazakhstan has been selected at the end of May 2017 among 79 accepted in France (out of 159 submitted projects).
Thus, from February 2018 to the end of July 2019, 16 students from Kazatu will study Food Innovation, Agribusiness, Animal productions at Bachelor and Master level at ESA for a study period of 6 to 10 months. Moreover, 4 staff mobilities of one week will take place at ESA and Kazatu with the objective of sharing knowledges in Food Processing and Innovation in teaching foreign languages.
The whole mobilities were made possible thanks to the financial support of the European Commission through Erasmus+KA107 programs.
