Erasmus+Jean Monnet Networks (Policy debate with the academic world)
This is an EU grant supporting the creation and development of consortia of international players (HEIs, Centres of Excellence, departments, teams, individual experts, etc.) in the area of European Union studies and the enhancement of existing networks supporting specific activities and fostering the participation of young researchers in EU-related themes.
Jean Monnet Networks contribute to gathering information, exchanging practices, building knowledge and promoting the European Integration process across the world.
Such projects will be based on unilateral proposals, focused on activities that cannot be achieved successfully at a national level and require the involvement of a minimum of three partner institutions (including the applicant
institution) from three different countries. Their aim is to undertake projects that have a multinational rather than a national dimension.
Networks can carry out one or more of the following activities:
- gathering and promoting information and results on methodologies applied to high-level research and teaching on EU studies;
- enhancing cooperation between different higher education institutions and other relevant bodies throughout Europe and around the world;
- exchanging knowledge and expertise with a view to mutually enhancing good practices;
- fostering cooperation and creating a high knowledge exchange platform with public actors and the European Commission services on highly relevant EU subjects.
The project should last three years.
Applications must be submitted by higher education institutions or other organisations active in the European Integration 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.
The applicant must be the coordinator of the network that comprises a minimum of three participating institutions from three different countries.
Applicants should have submitted applications to the Education, Audiovisual, and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) by 23 February 2017, 12:00 (midday) CET, for projects starting as of 1 September of the same year.
For further support they should contact the National Agency in their country.
Individuals seeking to apply should contact their educational establishment.
