38 Jean Monnet projects coordinated by 24 universities and other organisations from Ukraine have been selected for a total grant funding of over €1.4 million under the European Union’s Erasmus+ Programme. In total, 360 projects were selected for funding. These are the results of the 2020 Call for Proposals announced by the Education Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the European Commission.
“Jean Monnet Activities are an important part of the integration of Ukrainian Higher Education Institutions, research organisations and civil society into the European academic, research and policy landscape. Through the study of the legal framework and good practices, Ukrainian students, academic staff, researchers and the community in general are approaching European standards in various fields. I find this very important when we talk about Ukraine and its path to political association and economic integration with the European Union, which actually begins with people and their own understanding and aspirations,” underlined Ambassador Matti MAASIKAS, Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine.
