Jean Monnet Networks foster the creation and development of consortia of international players (higher education institutions, Centres of Excellence, departments, teams, individual experts, etc.) in the area of European Union studies.


Jean Monnet Networks have a duration of three years.

They contribute to gathering information, exchanging practices, building knowledge and promoting the European integration process across the world.

This Action can also support the enhancement of existing networks supporting specific activities, notably fostering the participation of young researchers in EU-related themes.

These 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.

 

What does it support

Over the lifetime of a project, networks may typically realise a broad range of activities, such as for example:

  • 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.

 

Who can benefit from it

Direct and indirect beneficiaries of Jean Monnet activities include:

  • Higher education institutions or other organisations active in the European Union subject area, and especially academics specialised in European Union studies;
  • Students;
  • Policy-makers and professionals;
  • Civil society and the general public at large.

 

What support is available

The maximum grant that can be awarded is 300.000 EUR for the project duration of three years. This can represent a maximum of 80% of the total eligible cost of the Jean Monnet Network.

Further information on the budget of Jean Monnet Networks can be found in the Jean Monnet chapter of the Programme Guide.

 

Who can apply

  • Higher education institutions (HEIs) or other organisation active in the European Union subject area, established in any country of the world.
  • HEIs located in Erasmus+ Programme Countries must hold a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE).
  • An ECHE is not required for participating HEIs in Partner Countries.
  • The applicant must be the coordinator of the network that comprises a minimum of three participating institutions from three different countries.
  • The designated institutions (identified in the Regulation establishing the Erasmus+ Programme) pursuing an aim of European interest are not eligible to apply under this Action.
