Further info

Duration of project: Three years. Chair-holders of three-year term contracts for Jean Monnet Chairs must wait until one academic year has elapsed following the end of the previous contractual period before submitting a new application for the same Action type. This obligatory pause does not apply if the new proposal is for a different Action type e.g. a former Chair holder applying for a Module. 

Jean Monnet Chair holders must teach a minimum of 90 hours per academic year (for three consecutive years) and carry out at least one additional activity per academic year as described above. 

Type of Funding Grant
Financial details

The maximum grant that can be awarded is 50 000 € that can represent the maximum of 75% of the total cost of the Jean Monnet Chair.

A system based on a combination of scales of unit costs and flat-rate financing for the awarding of grants under the Jean Monnet Activities applies. This system is determined on the basis of a calculated national teaching cost per hour. The following method is used:

  • Teaching scale of unit cost: the calculated national teaching unit cost per hour is multiplied by the teaching number of hours of the Jean Monnet Chair. Depending on the country, unit cost per hour are between 80 € and  200 €.
  • Additional flat-rate financing: a 'top-up' percentage of 10% for a Jean Monnet Chair is added to the above mentioned unit costs basis. This top-up percentage takes account of the additional academic activities included in a Chair such as staff costs, travel and subsistence costs, dissemination costs, costs for teaching materials and indirect costs, etc..

The final grant is then obtained by applying the maximum 75% EU funding of total calculated amount and by respecting the maximum grant ceiling for a Jean Monnet Chair (50 000 €).
