Easy europe logo miniature

For more than 10 years the CMA Lyon-Rhône is a member of the consortium EASY EUROPE, a network of experts at the service of European mobility and supported by the Chamber of Craft of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes for apprentices, teacher and non-teacher trainers and in-company tutors.

Key figures

Over the past 10 years, more than 100 business leaders have participated in study trips.

About 8 to 10 people participate in each trip.

7 countries have already been visited: Italy, Sweden, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Ireland and United Kingdom.

Sectors and subjects of previous visits: building / eco-building, textiles, jewelry, bakery, chimney sweeping, etc.


The organization of European mobilities allows participants to train abroad in order to discover new professional, linguistic and cultural environments and to explore, deepen and renew work techniques.

The acquisition of broad skills, open-mindedness, and the ability to communicate in a foreign language are indeed essential qualities on the job market.

Within this framework, the CMA Lyon-Rhône regularly organizes study trips, particularly for craftsmen, in-company tutors and agents of consular chambers. These missions, which last an average of three days, promote the acquisition of new skills and enable:

  • To promote the mobility of professionals in Europe,
  • To exchange know-how,
  • To observe and share good practices,
  • To exchange between professionals on the technical and organizational evolutions of a professional sector,
  • To identify new techniques/technologies,
  • To have information on the economic, legal and cultural aspects,
  • To study the conditions of professional training in European countries,
  • To establish long-term exchanges and initiate future strategic partnership programs,
  • To consider possibilities of exchange of apprentices,
  • To strengthen language skills.
