International - Jean Monnet Action

Jean Monnet is the part of Erasmus+ dedicated to promoting excellence in EU studies in higher education around the world.

Jean Monnet Actions aim to build bridges between academics, researchers and EU policymakers.

There is an emphasis on the study of and research on EU integration and in understanding Europe's place in a globalised world.

Jean Monnet Actions are organised and applied for via higher education institutions but, if you are an individual working in higher education, you may be interested in finding out what the different opportunities could mean for you.

  1. Modules: Jean Monnet Modules are short teaching programmes or courses on EU studies. They can be introductory modules on the EU, courses that concentrate on a specific aspect or discipline within EU studies, or be more multi-disciplinary in approach.

  2. Chairs: Jean Monnet Chairs are teaching posts with a specialisation in European Union studies for university professors or senior lecturers. These are posts lasting 3 years.

  3. Centres of Excellence: The Centres gather the expertise and understanding of high-level experts to develop links with and between various subjects related to the EU, as well as creating transnational activities and links with other institutions in other countries.

  4. Support to Associations: Erasmus+ provides the opportunity for associations to carry out a range of activities to publicise information about the EU among a broader public.

  5. Networks: Jean Monnet Networks aim to foster the creation and development of consortia to gather information, build knowledge, exchange ideas, and promote European integration.

  6.  Projects: Erasmus+ provides the opportunity for organisations to manage projects in three core fields – Innovation, Cross-fertilisation, and Spread content
