The Jean Monnet program is primarily aimed at supporting an excellent level of teaching and research in the field of European Union studies.
Main topics of the Jean Monnet program:
European Studies and Comparative Regional Studies
EU Communication and Information Studies
EU Economic Studies
EU Historical Studies
EU Studies of Intercultural Dialogue
EU Interdisciplinary Studies
EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies
EU Law Studies
EU Political and Administrative Studies
However, other thematic areas such as sociology, philosophy, religion, geography, literature studies, art, natural sciences, environmental studies, global studies and others may be associated with Jean Monnet. Comparative studies can be included only on condition that they deal with different world integration processes.
The topic must include a view of teaching, research or reflection of the European Union and should contribute to the Europeanisation of study programs.
Jean Monnet supported activities aim at increasing teaching and research capacity on EU themes, improving or upgrading curricula (to attract excellent students). The objectives include strengthening cooperation with partners from other countries and supporting the professional development of young researchers and professors.
