Jean Monnet Actions

The Jean Monnet Actions aim at promoting EU values & excellence in teaching and research in the field of European Union studies worldwide.

Jean Monnet Activities support the following actions:

  • Jean Monnet Module

    is a short teaching programme (or course) in the field of European Union studies at a higher education institution. Each Module has a minimum duration of 40 teaching hours per academic year
  • Jean Monnet Chair

    is a teaching post with a specialization in European Union studies for university professors or senior lecturers. Only one professor may hold the Chair and must provide a minimum of 90 teaching hours per academic year.
  • Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence

    is a focal point of competence and knowledge on European Union subjects. The academic responsibility of a Centre must be assumed by a Jean Monnet Chair holder. A Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence gathers the expertise and competences of high-level experts (including Jean Monnet Chairs and/or Jean Monnet Module holders) and aims at developing synergies between the various disciplines and resources in European studies, as well as at creating joint transnational activities and structural links with academic institutions in other countries.
  • Jean Monnet Networks

    foster the creation and development of consortia of international players (HEIs, Centres of Excellence, departments, teams, individual experts, etc.) in the area of European Union studies.
  • Jean Monnet Projects

    support innovation, cross-fertilisation and the spread of European Union content. These projects will be based on unilateral proposals - although the proposed activities may involve other partners - and may last between 12 and 24 months.
  • Jean Monnet Support to Associationcontributes to the study of the European integration process. Associations should be interdisciplinary and open to all interested professors, teachers and researchers specialising in European Union issues.
