Jean Monnet Activities supported are 3 TYPES:

 

Jean Monnet Activities are described in detail in the Programme Guide and Call is published at the EACEA website.

The Erasmus+ Programme Guide includes Jean Monnet Actions Chapters

The European Union considers an environmental safety as an important component of European stability. Water security is one of the priorities of national and European policies to ensure the goals of sustainable development. It is important to note that Ukraine has a number of topical environmental issues of water security and, at the same time, has an important role in ensuring environmental sustainability in Europe. Actual new challenges are in preparing of environmentalists in the higher education system. Therefore, it is extremely important to improve the content of the training of environmentalists and to ensure specialists’ knowledge in Ukraine. Jean Monnet Module that is proposed will motivate Ukrainian university teachers and students in studying and reflection of EU water policy and environmental mechanisms of its effective implementation for providing sustainable development of the country.The Jean Monnet Module has multidisciplinary character. The one include knowledge of monitoring, environmental policy, legal aspects, management, environmental safety of water resources. The Module will promote European research and study experience with regard to environmental management, instruments, eco-innovations, implementation of environmentally friendly technologies in the EU. The Module will have strong impact on Master’s Students. The students and young researchers will be able have a valuable learning experience to compare and to evaluate national environmental practices with the EU experience and impacts of individual member states. The realization of the Module in practice of Master’s Students study will promote future young professionals’ understanding of the EU principles and experience of water security and foster transforming economy of Ukraine into EU. Further dissemination of the project outcomes among interested experts and the general public will be reached through the running of Internet page of the Module and free online course.

Just today (21Feb2018) I asked a group of undergraduate medical students at our Department whether someone knows what is Erasmus+. No one has never seen this word. According to Ukraine–EU Association Agreement, Ukraine has to adopt numerous EU directives and regulations in healthcare. This will bring Ukraine closer to EU standards and help to solve its long-term problems. However, for this, Ukraine has to improve its medical education system dramatically. Thus, brining best experience and practices of the EU to our universities is our first priority. In accordance with recently started healthcare reform, inspired by the EU medical system, this Module aims at equipping students and young professionals with knowledge on EU medical education. The Module comprises a teaching course on European tools, policies and best practices in medical education, summer school and round tables for graduates, teachers, local government bodies, medical experts, representatives of NGOs and the public. The Module will highlight positive European policies and practices in medical education from an interdisciplinary perspective. We plan to invite to our University an EU professional who can describe the issues from the angle of both a medical student and a medical doctor. This will be a rare opportunity for both our students and teachers to better understand what it is to be a doctor in Europe, how it is to study medicine in Europe, how medical teaching in Europe is done, and how we can bring our education closer to the EU standards. We will also invite local government bodies that they will learn how the health system should be organized according to EU standards. The main outputs of this JM Module will be i) increase awareness in key aspects of EU medical policies, including how they enhance their effectiveness and address social challenges; and ii) transformation of knowledge on the EU medical system into practical approaches for effective medical education in Ukraine.

The project 'Building Resilient States and Societies: EU’s Response to New Security Challenges in the European Neighbourhood Area' aims to bridge a major gap in knowledge and understanding of current and new threats in Eu-rope’s strategic orbit and contribute to development of research-led teaching and evidence-based policy making in European Security Studies by considering theoretical and practical issues relating to security cooperation between the EU and its neighbourhood.
