Nathalie Loiseau, the new French minister in charge of the European affairsNathalie Loiseau, nouvelle ministre française chargée des Affaires européennes

The Association des Amis de Franck Biancheri (AAFB) wishes to congratulate Nathalie Loiseau, the new French minister in charge of the European affairs.

We are very excited to hear about this nomination as Nathalie Loiseau was one of the first members of AEGEE / European Students Forum, and, together with Franck Biancheri, she defended the existence of the #Erasmus programme.

In November 2012 she wrote the following homage in the guestbook dedicated to Franck’s memory:

“I knew Franck first within EGEE, then IDE*. Franck was a sower, his ideas germinated and he left deep traces in each of us. If his death was a shock, let us be careful to carry on his work; Europe needs his intellectual heritage. I express my condolences to his family. ” (In Memoriam https://www.franck-biancheri.eu/fran…/in-memoriam-livre-dor/)

In association with the memory of Franck Biancheri, we wish her a beautiful European path, of which she is one of the builders – #CitizensRoute73

L’association des Amis de Franck Biancheri (AAFB) transmet toutes ses félicitations à Nathalie Loiseau, nouvelle ministre française chargée des affaires européennes.

Nous sommes très émus de cette nomination. Nathalie Loiseau a été l’une des premières membres de AEGEE / European Students’ Forum, qui, avec Franck Biancheri, a défendu l’existence du programme #Erasmus.

En novembre 2012 elle avait inscrit dans le livre d’or dédié à la mémoire de Franck, l’hommage suivant:

“J’ai connu Franck par EGEE, puis IDE*. Franck était un semeur. Ses idées ont germé et il laisse une trace profonde en chacun d’entre nous. Si son décès est un choc, soyons attentifs à poursuivre son oeuvre; L’Europe a besoin de son héritage intellectuel. J’adresse mes condoléances à ses proches.”

En association avec la mémoire de Franck Biancheri, nous lui souhaitons une belle route européenne, dont elle est de ses bâtisseurs – #CitizensRoute73
