This Jean Monnet Action aims to support activities carried out by associations active in the field of European Union studies.

Projects under the Action Jean Monnet support have a duration of 3 years.

Jean Monnet supports associations that have as their explicit purpose to contribute to the study of the European integration process.

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 regional, national or supranational level.

Support will be given only to associations that are officially registered and have independent legal status.

 

What does it support

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

• organise and carry out 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 amount the instituitons involved in these issues, including the EU Institutions as well as a wider public thus enhancing active citizenship.  

 

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.
