In 1989, the Jean Monnet programme was launched to support academic research on European integration in its Member States. Thirty years on, the programme continues to fund teaching and research on EU policies and fosters dialogue between academics, decision makers and civil society actors around the world.
What is the aim of Jean Monnet Activities?
Jean Monnet Activities are designed to promote excellence in teaching and research in the field of European Union studies worldwide. The activities also foster the dialogue between the academic world and policy-makers, in particular with the aim of enhancing governance of EU policies.
European Union studies comprise 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 of the EU in a globalised world and in promoting an active European citizenship and dialogue between people and cultures.
