In order to ensure continuity over the years and sustained growth of this initiative, in 2017 the IEG community decided to elect the first ever international team. The team consisted of three people which were in charge of supervising the project and coordinating the international level of the IEG. As the implementation of the international team was a success and there is still a need for the existence of an international body every year we are launching the open call for the IEG Team which is made up of three highly motivated members who take on the positions of:
Responsible for coordination of a team of three members and the main contact to the international level of ESN. This person has the responsibility of ensuring that the project strategy and action plan are followed and implemented. She/he also has the responsibility to establish international collaborations as well as represent the International Erasmus Games towards the Network.
Responsible for ensuring high visibility of the IEG, both internally and externally. This is done primarily via social media, the ieg.esn.org website, videos and promotional material. She/he is responsible for managing the fan page of the IEG and other social media tools, as well as creating promotional campaigns designed to boost the project. The Communication Officer is expected to significantly raise the profile of the IEG and communicate the best practices of National and Local Erasmus Games to the Network. She/he is also responsible for management and development of the IEG brand.
The main contact between the IEG team and the national and local level; in particular, the National Coordinators in charge of the IEG delegations. She/he takes care of the general administration of the team, such as scheduling calls and writing minutes. Also takes care of collecting and analysing data related to National and Local Erasmus Games in the Network and provides the International Team with a constant overview of the project implementation, as well as offering support to the Network.
The elected team takes over the duties of coordinating the project from July of every year and always has a transition period with the old team. Their mandates last one year until July of the following year.
IEG Team 2018/2019:
I’m a passionate volunteer and since I joined this Network I can truly say I became a European citizen. I enjoy advocating for a healthier lifestyle of our students and volunteers but I also do not shy away from sport myself as amateur football enthusiast. I jumped on board of the IEG train years back as a National Representative of ESN Croatia and since then haven’t looked back.
After developing my skills in ESN Zadar, ESN Croatia and NEC, this is my fourth gig in the field of communications and I am looking forward to new challenges. Handball is my greatest love when it comes to sport, but I have tried to build a professional career in table tennis. I spend most of my time reading, trying to learn new languages, DIY-ing and adding things to my bucket list.
IEG Team 2017/2018:
I’m a passionate volunteer of the Erasmus Student Network for many years already and since I joined this Network I can truly say that I became a European citizen. I enjoy advocating for a healthier lifestyle of our students and volunteers but I also do not shy away from sport myself as amateur football enthusiast.
I am a big fan of this project since its begin in 2014 bringing together exchange students from all over Europe for a friendly but still intense competition is very rewarding. The International Erasmus Games are my favourite event of the Erasmus Student Network and I am happy to spread this initiative to as many countries as possible.
I joined ESN AGH Cracow in late 2010 and within years held several key positions including president of ESN Poland Association. In the IEG project from the very beginning supported the local OC of the very first edition of the common initiative between ESN Italy and ESN Poland. Privately a great fan and former amateur soccer player.
