Erasmus+ provides the opportunity for eligible organisations to:
There are also opportunities to support the enhancement of existing networks supporting specific activities, notably fostering the participation of young researchers in EU-related themes.
Organisations intending to apply must be the coordinator of a network consisting of at least three institutions from three different countries.
Although organisations of any type active in the field of European integration may participate, higher education institutions from Programme Countries must hold a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education. The designated European institutions (identified in the Regulation establishing the Erasmus+ Programme) pursuing an aim of European interest are not eligible.
A Network is expected to become a reference point for the subject they cover, as well as a multiplier of knowledge, contributing to the collection, analysis and distribution of information.
Networks are responsible for developing their own work plan and, if selected for funding, are expected to implement the activities as described during the period covered by the grant.
Organisations interested in applying should do so through the Education, Audiovisual, and Culture Executive Agency.
The Erasmus+ Programme Guide is the main source of information on Jean Monnet Networks, although more information on the application process is available from the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.
