AEGEE-Cluj Napoca wins the Franck Biancheri Award 2016 !AEGEE-Cluj Napoca remporte le Franck Biancheri Award 2016 !

To help keep Franck Biancheri’s work alive, AEGEE and AAFB (Association des Amis de Franck Biancheri) have jointly created the FRANCK BIANCHERI YEAR award, in which one AEGEE antenna organizes events related to the legacy of Franck Biancheri during the whole year. Each year we call all AEGEE antennas to hand in proposals and AAFB gives financial and educational support to the best project.

In 2016, the name changes from « Franck Biancheri Year » to « Franck Biancheri Award » showing how much the AAFB’s deep desire to launch a sustainable project in close relation with AEGEE and to keep working on the democratization of European decision-making processes (as advocated by Franck) remains unchanged.

The open call for applications, launched to all AEGEE antennae, has seen the emergence of many great projects that have led to interesting discussions between the members of the Selection Committee to determine the winner...

After AEGEE-Delft and AEGEE-Paris, it’s time for AEGEE Cluj-Napoca to honor the memory of Franck Biancheri and to receive a financial (2500€) and educational support in 2016.

This year, the winner has decided to focus most of its efforts on a big event organized in the spring 2016 and dealing with the following general themes: Social, Political and Economic Europe (complete programme and speakers to come soon).

Afin de continuer à faire vivre le travail de Franck Biancheri, l’AEGEE (Association des Etats généraux des Etudiants de l’Europe) et l’AAFB (Association des amis de Franck Biancheri) ont créé en 2014 le prix « Franck Biancheri Year », qui engage une antenne locale d’AEGEE à mettre ses activités sous le signe de l’héritage conceptuel de Franck Biancheri pendant une année, en contrepartie d’un support financier et éducationnel.

Si en 2016 le nom évolue de « Franck Biancheri Year » à « Franck Biancheri Award », la volonté de l’AAFB de lancer des projets durables en collaboration avec AEGEE, et de poursuivre ses travaux sur la démocratisation des processus de décisions européens demeure inchangée !

Ainsi, l’appel à candidatures pour la session 2016, ouvert à l’ensemble des antennes d’AEGEE, a vu émerger de très beaux projets qui ont donné lieu à de longues discussions entre les membres du Comité de Sélection pour parvenir à déterminer le lauréat….

Après AEGEE-Delft et AEGEE-Paris, l’AAFB est heureuse de vous annoncer que c’est au tour d’AEGEE Cluj-Napoca d’honorer la mémoire de Franck Biancheri et de recevoir le soutien financier (2500€) et éducationnel de l’AAFB en 2016 !

Cette « Franck Biancheri Award » se concrétisera sous la forme d’un évènement d’envergure organisé au printemps 2016 par l’antenne d’AEGEE Cluj-Napoca, qui portera une réflexion sur les thèmes de l’Europe Sociale, Politique et Économique (programme complet et intervenants seront confirmés dans les semaines à venir).
