A Jean Monnet Chair is a teaching post with a specialisation in European Union studies for university professors. It can only be held by one professor, who must provide the minimum of 90 teaching hours per academic year over a period of three consecutive years. In addition the Chair must carry out at least one additional activity per academic year.
Main activities (minimum of 90 hours per academic year):
- deepen teaching in EU studies in an official curriculum of a higher education institution
- provide in-depth teaching on EU matters for future professionals in fields which are in increasing demand on the labour market
- 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.
