History of the Section:
The first idea of setting up a section was created by our former president Martina Gabajová in November 2011 while she was on Erasmus Programme in Finland. Realisation of agenda started up in between December ´11 – January ´12 in cooperation with doc. Mgr.

Our section has been officialy approved as a part of ESN Slovakia.
Since then a lot of things changed. In 2016 our section has started to cooperate with University of Trnava and at mini National Platform in Žilina 11.3-13.3. 2016 we have officialy changed our name to ESN Trnava, so we can act in favour of both universities: University of Ss.
