Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Modules
This is an EU grant for a short teaching programme or course in the field of European Union studies at a higher education institution. Each Module has a minimum duration of 40 teaching hours per academic year.
Modules may concentrate on one particular discipline in European studies or be multidisciplinary in approach and therefore call upon the academic input of several professors and experts.
Jean Monnet Modules must take one of the following forms:
– general or introductory courses on European Union issues (in particular at institutions and faculties that do not yet have a highly developed course offering in the field);
– specialised teaching on European Union developments (in particular at institutions and faculties that do already have a highly developed course offering in the field);
– summer and intensive courses that are fully recognised.
Teaching hours may include direct contact hours in the context of group lectures, seminars, tutorials and may include any of the aforementioned in a distance-learning format but do not include individual instruction.
Higher education institutions have the role of supporting and promoting the Module coordinators in their teaching, research and reflection activities:
– they recognise the teaching activities developed;
– they monitor the activities, give visibility and valorise the results obtained by their staff involved in the Module.
Professors and researchers of European Union studies and higher education institutions worldwide can take part in the project.
The project should last three years.
This action follows a lump sum funding model and the maximum EU grant for modules is 30 000 EUR.
The lump sum contributions will cover costs staff costs, travel and subsistence costs, equipment costs and subcontracting as well as other costs (dissemination of information, publishing, translation).
