A Jean Monnet Module is a short teaching programme (or course) in the field of European Union studies at a higher education institution. Each Module has a minimum duration of 40 teaching hours per academic year and must focus on one particular discipline in European studies or be multidisciplinary requiring the academic input of several professors and experts.

The aim of the modules is to promote research and teaching experience among young researchers, scholars and practitioners in EU issues, foster the publication and dissemination of academic research, create interest in the EU, foster the introduction of an EU angle mainly into non EU related studies and deliver tailor-made courses on specific EU issues relevant for graduates in their professional life.

For further information on Jean Monnet Modules please refer to the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.

Additional activities:

provide teaching/lectures to students from other departments (e.g. architecture, medicine, etc) to better prepare them for their future professional life
encourage, advise and mentor young teachers and researchers in EU studies subject areas
conduct, monitor and supervise research on EU subjects for other educational levels such as teacher training and compulsory education
conferences, seminars/webinars, workshops, etc. targeting policy makers at local, regional and national level as well as civil society.

A Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence is a focal point of competence and knowledge on European Union subjects. It brings together high-level experts to create links between the various disciplines and resources in European studies and to form links with academic institutions in other countries. The Centres play a key role in reaching out to students from faculties not normally dealing with European Union issues as well as to policy makers, civil servants, organised civil society and the general public at large.

The following activities are supported:

organising and coordinating resources related to European Union studies
leading research activities in specific European Union subjects
developing content on EU subjects to update and complement current curricula
debate and exchange of experiences about the EU, where possible in partnership with local stakeholders and/or EU Representations Offices in Member States and EU Delegations in third countries
publication of results of research activities.

For further information on Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence please refer to the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.
