Within the 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 European Union.
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 Jean Monnet Programme is now present in more than 70 countries throughout the world and more than 800 universities offer Jean Monnet courses as part of their curricula. The Jean Monnet Programme brings together a network of about 1,700 professors, reaching audiences of 265,000 students every year.
The types of actions connected with the objectives of the key activity 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 "Learning EU at School", and for Multilateral Research Groups.
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 - expected to be published in autumn 2012).
