Jean Monnet Actions support teaching and research in the field of European Union studies. The actions promote active European citizenship and deal with the EU’s role in a globalised world by increasing awareness of the EU and facilitating future relationships and dialogue between nations worldwide. Jean Monnet Actions are also aimed at spreading public diplomacy in relation to third countries by promoting the EU’s values and increasing visibility of what the European Union stands for and what it intends to achieve.
In short, the objectives of Jean Monnet Actions are to promote
- knowledge of the EU and interest in its operation
- innovative multi-disciplinary and cross-sectoral teaching and research
- dialogue between the academic world and policymakers
- organisational networking.
In addition, the activities equip students and young researchers with knowledge of European Union subjects relevant for their academic career and professional life.
