Related sub-programmes or priority areas

The Jean Monnet programme contains three distinct key activities:

  • Support for University-level projects on European integration. These include university chairs, centres of excellence, course modules, information or research activities as well as support for academic associations of professors and researchers in European integration. Jean Monnet projects are selected on the basis of their academic merits and following a process of rigorous and independent peer review. 

  • Support for six specific academic institutions pursuing an aim of European interest, such as the College of Europe and the European University Institute. These six institutions do not need to apply for funding as they have been explicitly listed in the Lifelong Learning Programme by the European Parliament and the Council.

  • Support for European-wide associations active at European level in the field of education and training. These European associations must be present in at least 12 EU Member States. There is a specific annual call for proposals for the selection of these associations.
