You first
For almost half a century, Égide has been welcoming and assisting students and researchers, professionals and experts, as well as high-profile personalities from the economic, political or cultural world throughout their stay in France or abroad.
With our experience and our high-touch, professional approach, we offer a comprehensive range of quality services designed to help your visitors make the most of their stay.
Our 200-strong team constantly strives to foster a spirit of cooperation, embracing all different cultures. By taking care of you and your visitors, by handling all the logistics of organising and managing their stay, Égide is on hand to help with all your international mobility initiatives.
For a student, arriving in a foreign country often means being plunged into the unknown. The subtleties of the language, the laws and administration, and the social and cultural environment can often become obstacles and spoil their stay. On the strength of our extensive experience, we are able to provide students with individual assistance to optimise their time abroad at every level, including in the follow-up of their studies. In 2009, we organised the international mobility of 7,000 French and foreign grant students who were keen to pursue their education in a foreign country.

In partnership with the world of business, higher education and research,
Égide also helps French and foreign researchers during their stay abroad. From providing information before they travel right through to their return home, our teams are on hand every day so that researchers spend their time abroad in the best possible conditions. By handling a variety of aspects, we allow them to focus on their research with full peace of mind.
True to France’s long tradition of hospitality, Égide organises the visits of high-profile personalities coming from abroad, right down to the slightest detail. Be it an information trip, a conference or a seminar, we help to make these top political, economic, scientific and cultural meetings truly successful, both on a personal and a professional level. In 2009, we took care of 5,300 key foreign personalities mainly invited by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.
After arranging and handling almost 7,500 missions in 2009 alone,
we have gained a unique know-how in the field of expert short-term assignments abroad. One of our main strengths in this line of work is our ability to arrange the travel plan of an individual or group within 24 hours, thanks to our highly responsive travel department. Our flawless command of all the logistics aspects means you and your experts can be sure that they will be able to concentrate on their work.
As an extension of our business as a mobility agency,
we also organise the logistics of special events, be it for 20 or several thousand people. Relying on a network of service providers hand-picked for the quality of their work, and by assigning you a single contact person, Égide becomes the true mastermind and guarantees the success of your event. In 2008, Égide organized dozens of international conferences and seminars, and took charge of more than 7,000 French and foreign participants.
