Jean Monnet Action (KA 1)

Call for proposals 2010


Within the new Lifelong Learning Programme, the first key activity of the Jean Monnet Programme brings together the two instruments formerly known as the Jean Monnet Action and the Support for Study and Research Centres . The actions supported under this key activity aim to stimulate excellence in teaching, research, reflection and debate in European integration studies in higher education institutions within and outside the Community.

European Integration studies involve the study of the origins and evolution of the European Communities and the European Union in all its aspects. European integration studies cover the analysis of both the internal and external dimension of European integration, including the European Union's role in the dialogue between peoples and cultures. Comparative studies concerning national practices are not regarded as European integration studies.

The types of actions connected with the objectives of the key activity referred to in article 3(3)(a) are Jean Monnet Chairs, Centres of Excellence and Modules, focusing on teaching activities and support for Associations of Professors and Researchers, for Information and Research Activities relating to European integration and for Multilateral Research Groups.

Teaching activities

  • Jean Monnet Chair
    A symbolic term corresponding to a full-time teaching post with a specialization in European integration studies covering a minimum 90 teaching hours per academic year.
  • "Ad personam" Jean Monnet Chair
    Teaching and research posts with a specialization in European integration studies. Reserved for (i) former Jean Monnet Chair holders with evidence of high-level international teaching and publication record and/or (ii) professors with a distinguished background as former high-level practitioners in the field of European integration.
  • Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence
    This is a clearly labelled multi-disciplinary structure pooling scientific, human and documentary resources for European integration studies and research within one or more universities.
  • European Module
    This is a short programme of European integration study of minimum 40 teaching hours per academic year, which may be multi-disciplinary in approach.

Academic and research activities

  • Jean Monnet multilateral research groups
    A research partnership between at least three Jean Monnet Chairs from three different countries leading to the creation of an integrated academic network with a joint research plan and pluridisciplinary synergies in the field of European integration studies.

The Jean Monnet Programme is now present in 62 countries throughout the world and more than 740 universities offer Jean Monnet courses as part of their curricula.  The Jean Monnet Programme brings together a network of 1,500 professors, reaching audiences of 250,000 students every year.

The other two key activities of the Jean Monnet Programme are:
-  operating grants to support specified institutions dealing with issues relating to European integration (managed by the European Commission);
-  operating grants to support the functioning of certain institutions and associations active in the field of lifelong learning (managed by the Executive Agency and subject to a separate call for proposals).
