LesEuronautes.euLesEuronautes.eu is a website aiming at informing young people about opportunities of mobility in Europe and encouraging them to take advantage of it. The project (initiated by the European Union and the French government) is managed by Touteleurope.fr, a company which aims at giving to the citizens as much information as possible about EU, its organisation and actions.

Company - City - Country :

Les Euronautes, Paris, France (H.Q) All over Europe

Can you talk a bit about your company/project?

Touteleurope.fr is a company which aims at giving to the citizens as much information as possible about EU, its organisation and actions. At the end of 2008 we launched a new website, leseuronautes.eu.

LesEuronautes.eu is a website aiming at informing young people about opportunities of mobility in Europe and encouraging them to take advantage of it.

Even if LesEuronautes.eu is a French-speaking website, and therefore more suitable for French-speaking people, it is open for everyone.

Can you talk about the project?

This website provides practical information about the programs set up by the European Union and enabling young students or workers (aged between 15 and 25) to experience mobility in Europe; not only on the programmes (Erasmus, Leonardo, European Volunteering, etc. ), but also the accompanying facilities (scholarships, recognition of diplomas, European CV, etc. ). It offers also advice on how to move, study, and work abroad. It is a fully interactive place, enabling members of the community to exchange on their experiences, ask questions and share tips or good memories of a given city.

What is the status of the project?

Leseuronautes.eu is completely free from any kind of commercials and is of general interest.

In which way your services are different to other companies/projects?

As we do not depend on any kind of advertisement resources, we can focus on the quality of our contents, our goal being to provide youngsters with the best information regarding opportunities of mobility in Europe.

For example, the internships/jobs and accommodation offers published on the website are deemed to be adapted to youngsters with a limited work experience and budget.

What services/information/help do you provide to other companies/individuals?

One of the most interesting features of the website is the “Club” area, which hosts the “Euronautes” community. This interactive part of the site enable the Euronautes to exchange good deals concerning their trips or stays in various European cities, share an experience of mobility, and most importantly, meet other “Euronautes”.

We will provide soon a research engine for jobs/internships offers provided by companies/NGOs in Europe. We will soon extend this service to accommodation offers in Europe (flat sharing all over European capitals). You are also going to find a GoogleMap to localise not only members of the Club and the good deals they have posted, but also the jobs offers available through the search engine.

What is your activity on the Internet?

Leseuronautes.eu is an entirely on line activity. Our goal is to propose fitted information and advice to young people, and to provide them with a virtual place to share videos, pictures, thus fostering a specific social network.

What advantages/discounts could you offer to our readers?

As expatriates, back from a foreign country or future expatriates, your readers will find on leseuronautes.eu all the practical and updated information on travelling to, settling in, studying or working in the 27 EU member states. They will also learn everything about the programmes set up by the EU to enable students or workers to move in Europe.

Taking advantage of our "club" section, they can find other "euronautes", ask questions and find answers, or share experiences among nationals from different European countries.
