Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Modules
This is an EU grant for 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. 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.
Jean Monnet Modules must take one of the following forms:
- general or introductory courses on European Union issues (in particular at institutions and faculties that do not yet have a highly developed course offering in the field);
- specialised teaching on European Union developments (in particular at institutions and faculties that do already have a highly developed course offering in the field);
- summer and intensive courses that are fully recognised.
Higher education institutions have the role of supporting and promoting the Module coordinators in their teaching, research and reflection activities: they recognise the teaching activities developed; they monitor the activities, give visibility and valorise the results obtained by their staff involved in the Module.
Professors and researchers of European Union studies and higher education institutions worldwide can take part in the project.
The project should last three years.
The maximum grant that can be awarded is 30 000 EUR. This represents the maximum of 75% of the total cost of the Jean Monnet Module.
Applications must be submitted by a Higher Education Institution established in any Programme Country:
- 28 Member States of the European Union;
- EFTA/EEA countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway;
- EU candidate countries: Turkey, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia;
in any Country in the world.
Applicants should submit applications to the Education, Audiovisual, and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) by 23 February 2017, 12 pm CET, for projects starting as of 1 September of the same year.
HEIs established in Programme Countries must hold a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).
Higher Education Institutions should read the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.
For further support they should contact the National Agency in their country.
Individuals seeking to apply should contact their educational establishment.
