Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Support to associations
This is an EU grant supporting any worldwide associations of professors and researchers specialising in European Union Studies. The explicit purpose of the associations must be to contribute to the study of the European integration process at national or transnational level. 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 national, regional or supranational level. Support will be given only to associations that are officially registered and have independent legal status.
Associations can carry out one or more of the following activities:
- organising statutory activities of associations dealing with European Union studies and European Union issues (e.g. the publication of a newsletter, the setting up of a dedicated website, the organisation of the annual board meeting, the organisation of specific promotional events aimed at providing greater visibility to European Union subjects etc.)
- perform research in the field of specific European issues in order to advise local, regional, national and European policy makers and disseminate the outcomes among the institutions involved in these issues, including the EU Institutions as well as a wider public thus enhancing active citizenship.
The project should last three years.
Applications must be submitted by Associations active in the European Union subject area, established in a 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;
or 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.
Associations 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.
