For Students

This Jean Monnet Action aims to support activities carried out by associations active in the field of European Union studies.

 

Projects under the Action Jean Monnet support have duration of 3 years.

 

Jean Monnet supports associations that have as their explicit purpose to contribute to the study of the European integration process.

 

Such associations should be interdisciplinary and open to all interested professors, teachers and researchers specialising in European Union issues in the relevant country or region. They should be representative of the academic community in European Union studies at regional, national or supranational level.

Support will be given only to associations that are officially registered and have independent legal status.

Jean Monnet Networks are a new Jean Monnet action, which aims to foster the creation and development of consortia of international players (higher education institutions, Centres of Excellence, departments, teams, individual experts, etc.) in the area of European Union studies.

Jean Monnet Networks have a project duration of three years.

They contribute to gathering information, exchanging practices, building knowledge and promoting the European integration process across the world.

This Action can also support the enhancement of existing networks supporting specific activities, notably fostering the participation of young researchers in EU-related themes.

These projects will be based on unilateral proposals, focused on activities that cannot be achieved successfully at a national level and require the involvement of a minimum of five partner institutions (including the applicant institution) from five different countries. Their aim is to undertake projects that have a multinational rather than a national dimension.

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.

  • Innovation projects will explore new angles and different methodologies in view of making European Union subjects more attractive and adapted to various kinds of target populations (e.g. projects on Learning EU @ School);
  • Cross-fertilisation projects will promote discussion and reflection on European Union issues and enhance knowledge about the Union and its processes. These projects will aim at boosting EU knowledge in specific contexts;
  • Spread content projects will mainly concern information and dissemination activities.

A Jean Monnet Module is a short teaching programme (or course) in the field of European Union studies at a higher education institution with a duration of three years.

Each Module has to propose a minimum of 40 teaching hours per academic year.

Teaching hours are taken to include direct contact hours in the context of group lectures, seminars, tutorials and may include any of the aforementioned in a distance learning format but do not include individual instruction.

Modules may concentrate on one particular discipline in European studies or be multidisciplinary in approach and therefore call upon the academic input of several professors and experts.

Erasmus+ supports Jean Monnet Modules with the aim to:

  • promote research and first teaching experience for young researchers and scholars and practitioners in European Union issues;
  • foster the publication and dissemination of the results of academic research;
  • create interest in the EU and constitute the basis for future poles of European knowledge, particularly in Partner Countries;
  • foster the introduction of a European Union angle into mainly non EU related studies;
  • deliver tailor-made courses on specific EU issues relevant for graduates in their professional life.

The Jean Monnet Module anchors and mainstreams teaching on EU matters in curricula which so far have included EU-related content only to a limited extent. They also bring facts and knowledge on the European Union to a broad spectrum of learners and interested citizens.

Up to 20% of the budget allocated to support Modules will be granted to Jean Monnet Modules for which the coordinators are researchers who have obtained a PhD degree in the last five years. This measure will support young researchers starting their academic careers.
