Programme
Erasmus+
Type of Fund Action programme
Description of programme
"Erasmus+"

Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.

Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.

It will also support national efforts to modernise Education, Training, and Youth systems. In the field of Sport, there will be support for grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.

Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth; it will for the first time provide support for Sport. As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the EducationTraining, Youth, and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules.

Description of programme
"Jean-Monnet-Activities"

 Jean Monnet  supports:

  • Teaching modules, chairs and centers of excellence in higher education, in order to deepen the knowledge in the filed of European integration studies within the official curriculum of a higher education institution, and to carry out research on the EU, to monitor and supervise; This applies also to other educational sectors, e.g. the training of teachers and curricula in compulsory education;  These actions should also contribute to the development of comprehensive education offers in the field of European integration for future professionals in areas where there is increasing demand in the labor market. At the same time the actions will help to encourage young teachers and researchers to provide advice and support to deal with issues relating to European integration;
  • Political debate with representatives of the higher education sector, supported through: a) networks that aim to improve cooperation between universities in Europe and worldwide, and to promote the cooperation and creation of  a platform for knowledge exchange with stakeholders from public authorities and Commission staff on important EU issues; b) projects that aim to promote innovation, to support the mutual enrichment and dissemination of EU issues in order to promote discussions and reflections on EU topics and improve the knowledge about the EU and its activities;
  • Support for bodies and associations to organize and conduct statutory activities of associations that deal with EU-related issues and questions; and to reach a wider audience by publishing facts about the EU, thus promoting active European citizenship. Within the framework of the Jean Monnet activities, funding is also granted  for selected organisations, pursuing an aim of European interest;
  • Studies and conferences where policy makers make accessible, through critical and independent assessments of the academic world, new insights and concrete proposals  and reflect on current EU issues, particularly in the context of the annual major international conference on important policy issues with the participation of decision-makers, civil society and key representatives of the higher education sector.

"Jean Monnet Centres of Excellence"

A Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence is a focal point of competence and knowledge on European Union subjects. A Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence gathers the expertise and competences of high-level experts and aims at developing synergies between the various disciplines and resources in European studies, as well as at creating joint transnational activities and structural links with academic institutions in other countries. It also ensures openness to civil society. Jean Monnet Centres of Excellence have a major role in reaching out to students from faculties not normally dealing with European Union issues as well as to policy makers, civil servants, organised civil society and the general public at large.
