Teaching Activities

Academic and research activities


Jean Monnet Chair

Description

Jean Monnet Chairs are teaching posts with a specialisation in European integration studies. Jean Monnet Chairholders teach a minimum of 90 hours per academic year in the field of European integration studies. Only one professor may hold the Chair and must provide the minimum teaching hours required. Jean Monnet Chairholders have the rank of professor/senior lecturer and may not be a "visiting professor" at the establishment in question.

Full description: Show Hide

Jean Monnet Chairs are linked to the higher education institution that concludes the grant agreement. If an original Chairholder leaves the higher education institution, it is obliged to replace him or her by another member of its teaching staff with the same level of specialisation in European integration studies. The replacement of the original Chairholder requires written notification to the Executive Agency, which verifies the academic profile of the nominated Chairholder.

Holders of a Jean Monnet Chair can only reapply for a  Jean Monnet Chair ad personam and  must wait until one academic year has elapsed following the end of the previous contractual period before submitting the new application.

Association of professors and researchers

Description

The Jean Monnet Programme provides support for associations that have as their explicit purpose to contribute to the study of the European integration process. Such associations should be interdisciplinary and open to all interested professors, teachers and researchers specialising in European integration in the relevant country or region. They should be representative of the academic community in European integration studies in that country or region. Support can be given only to associations that are officially registered and have independent legal status.

Full description: Show Hide

Associations should contribute to:

• enhancing the visibility of scientific and physical resources relating to European integration studies available within the country or region;
• developing synergies between all available resources in European integration studies from the different academic disciplines;
• ensuring openness to civil society, i.e. the world outside the university, and to local and regional players.

The activities specifically targeted by Jean Monnet support include the organisation of annual meetings and the organisation of communication initiatives such as the creation of an internet site and the publication of a newsletter.
