Jean Monnet Networks foster the creation and development of consortia of international players (Higher Education Institutions, Centres of Excellence, departments, teams, individual experts, etc.). in the area of European Union studies in order to gather information, exchange practices, build knowledge and promote the European integration process across the world. The action can also support existing networks, specifically those encouraging the participation of young researchers in EU-related themes.
Jean Monnet Projects support innovation, cross-fertilisation and the spread of European Union content. "Innovation" projects explore new angles and different methodologies to make EU subjects more attractive and adapted to various populations. "Cross-fertilisation" projects promote discussion and reflection on EU issues and enhance knowledge about the Union and its processes. "Spread content" projects concern information and dissemination activities.
