European Student Parliaments

The EUSP project aims at strenghthening the dialogue between students and scientists.


Looking back on the student parliament in Toulouse we're so proud of everyone for their hard work and new ideas. Thanks for debating science with us!

Here are some highlights from the in Toulouse. We thank all of you for your great and innovative ideas regarding the 'Future of Mobility' in Europe! We all enjoyed the last days with you so much and wish you just the best for your future.

A special thanks goes to: city2science, Europäisches Schülerparlament Herford, מוזיאון המדע ע"ש בלומפילד ירושלים, Cork Institute of Technology - CIT, USI Università della Svizzera italiana (Official Page), ScienceView, Intersection Centre for Science and Innovation - among others!


We are on the move, keeping mobility as motto after . Aviation got us back to Germany quickly. We hope you also had a safe trip back home and enjoyed the European Student Parliament as much as we did.
It was lovely meeting all of you!


The "cherry on the cake" of this year's Finals is our visit at the ESOF 2018 Toulouse! We are heading there right now, to join the flash talks at the Palais du Sport.

Team building and expert hearings: It was a great first day at in Toulouse. Here are some pictures of our first sessions at the Student Parliaments.


Day 1: Today, we will start with a team building session and focus mainly on the expert hearings.


Everything is ready for the European Student Parliament in Toulouse! We look forward to meeting all of you tomorow!


Apart from scientific and political discussions, our participants will get to know the beautiful city Toulouse. The city in the South of France has so much to offer. For further info, take a look below on the page of the local tourisme office in Toulouse:

One week from now, we will be opening the Final in Toulouse!

For three days, students from 10 different countries will be drafting resolutions and have a final plenary debate at the Conseil Départemental de la Haute-Garonne!

SAVE THE DATE: We invite all of you to join our delegates when they debate their ideas about the Future of Mobility, and hand over their resolutions to the Commissioner Carlos Moedas from the European Commission on 9 July, 2018.

For further info or registration, please send a short message to [email protected]. We are looking forward to welcoming many of you!

The moderators play an important role during the student parliaments by supporting and guiding the students through the sessions, expert hearings and the final debate. That's why we are happy to announce that we have found an excellent team of moderators for this year's EUSP in Toulouse.

The following moderators will be on hand with help and advice for our students! Let us introduce to you 3/6 moderators:

Neda Živanović, Serbia - Chair of Moderators
Nathalie Ferko, Germany – Autonomous Vehicles
Cecilie Andersen, Denmark – Carbon-neutral Transport


Last but not least, topic #5 of the is Mobility in the city:

In large cities, millions of people and tones of goods move around every day. The city’s live ability is affected by roads, traffic, bicycle lanes and public-transport networks. Which modes of transport should have priority in urban planning? How does transport infrastructure use space in a city? And how does that affect pedestrians, cyclists or people dining outdoors? Is the concept of a personal car out of date?


Topic #4 of the is Neo-nomads and digital natives:

People are becoming more mobile in physical and digital space. Modern communication technologies may seem to negate the need for physical mobility, but are we travelling less frequently? How does our mobility vary across work, free time and holidays? What are the environmental and ethical consequences of travel? How are our habits changing and what does that mean for our mobility in the future?


Topic #3 of the is Aviation and space flight:

While not an everyday mode of transport, aviation moves people and goods globally and emits a considerable quantity of greenhouse gases. In contrast space flight remains a small scientific endeavour aimed at exploration rather than tourism or mass-transit. Closer to the ground, small autonomous aircraft known as drones are being tested for deliveries. How can the carbon emissions from aviation be reduced? How should drones be regulated in civil air space? And will commercial space flight become a reality in our lifetimes?


Topic #2 of the is about Carbon-neutral transport:

Transport generates almost a quarter of Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions, with road transport responsible for more than 70 per cent of emissions in the sector. How can we transport people and goods more efficiently? How could alternatives like electric or hydrogen-powered vehicles reduce emissions? What infrastructure do we need to support new types of vehicles? Can we produce biofuels from waste? And how can we speed up the transition to carbon-neutral transport?


This year's European Student Parliament Finals are about "The Future of Mobility". But mobility has many facets. How do we want to move along in the future? During the next days we will give you an overview of our topics.

Topic #1 is about Autonomous vehicles:

Truly autonomous vehicles are not just operated remotely, but respond intelligently to their environment. Automated subway trains have been operating for decades. Now the first driverless cars, buses and trucks are hitting our roads. Unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, are also being tested. What role will these vehicles play in future transport systems? How should they be regulated? And how can they be integrated into existing transport systems?


Did you know that the ‘Debate Science!’ project European Student Parliament 2018 initiated by Wissenschaft im Dialog and funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 involves 11 partner organisations who select the delegations of students?

We're looking forward to meeting, among others, City2science, Europäisches Schülerparlament Herford, מוזיאון המדע ע"ש בלומפילד ירושלים, Cork Institute of Technology - CIT, USI Università della Svizzera italiana (Official Page), ScienceView, Intersection Centre for Science and Innovation!

The participating countries are Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Serbia & Switzerland.


Good morning!
Today our team is heading to la ville rose to get everything ready for the European Student Parliament Finals 2018 in July.


We've got some good news!

After our great experiences in Copenhagen and Manchester, we are excited to announce another round of EUSP Finals funded by the European Commission.

This year we will be heading to Toulouse in the south of France to debate 'The Future of Mobility' with 70 students from different countries. Join us on our journey !

"It was like a gourmet dinner for my brain," said one student. We love this analogy about the student parliament!

Too short! This feedback says it all. Three days of meeting people, questioning scientists, writing resolutions, debating... and suddenly it was time to go home. Congrats on the good work and we hope you have happy memories!
