Within the new Erasmus+ Program, the Jean Monnet Actions aim to promote excellence in teaching and research in the field of European Union studies worldwide.
These Actions also aim at fostering the dialogue between the academic world and policy-makers to enhance, in particular - the governance of EU policies.
Key activities include courses, research, conferences, and publications in the field of EU studies.
European Union studies encompass the study of Europe in its entirety with particular emphasis on the European integration process in both its internal and external aspects. The discipline also covers the role that EU plays in fostering a globalized world and promoting active European citizenship and dialogue between people and cultures.
Jean Monnet Chairs, Centres of Excellence, Modules, Policy Debate with Academic World and Support to Academic Institutions or Associated Activities form part of the General Call for proposals and are described in detail in the Program Guide.
The EACEA also manages six designated beneficiaries pursuing an aim of general Union interest:
the Academy of European Law
the College of Europe
the European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education
the Centre International de Formation Européenne
the European Institute of Public Administration and
