    International Student Identity Card Association   (ISIC)

    EU Transparency Register

    230421219260-67 First registered on 21 Oct 2015

    Goals / Remit

    To provide all bona fide students, regardless of their nationality, race, gender or religion, with the opportunity to prove their student status in every country worldwide, via an official and affordable identifier of student status. This unique identifier aims to allow students access to preferential travel opportunities, specially negotiated services, discounts and experiences in every area and stage of student life, consequently reducing the cost of being a student. As such, the ISIC Association aspires to play a supporting role in improving intercultural understanding and increasing educational opportunities for all. ISIC has been the recipient of an endorsement from UNESCO since 1968.

    Main EU files targeted

    The first International Student Identity Card was created in 1953 by a group of pioneering European students. Given this original base, the ISIC Association retains strong roots and a sizeable student cardholder base in most EU member states.

    Consequently, the ISIC Association is keen to stay abreast of any EU initiatives related to the possible standardisation of student identification credentials across member states. Our primary interest relates to student identity for secondary and tertiary educational institutions. This can take the form of either plastic cards (with or without embedded technology) or virtual student ID's (on smartphones, for example).

  • Meetings


    1 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
