The Association des Amis de Franck Biancheri (Friends of Franck Biancheri Association – AAFB) is an association created in the aftermath of Franck Biancheri’s death which aims at gathering, synthesizing, promoting, perpetuating and defending his work.

  • Franck Biancheri is the founder of AEGEE-Europe.
  • Under his presidency AEGEE-Europe played a key role in the adoption of the ERASMUS programme.
  • This taught Franck that citizens were instrumental in the success of the European construction.
  • Therefore he spent the rest of his life advocating the need to democratize European decision-making processes and general functioning.
  • Unfortunately he passed away in 2012 at the early age of 51, too young to see his dream come true.

The Franck Biancheri Award was created in 2013 by the organisation now gathering his “Friends” (Association des Amis de Franck Biancheri) in order to encourage you to discover and discuss his ideas…

because it belongs to us to take up the torch he lit up.

AAFB and AEGEE-Europe launched a sustainable project aimed at reminding what AEGEE owes Franck with a view to help build on this grand heritage. This is where the “Franck Biancheri Award” – granted each year to various AEGEE antennae – was born.
