Jean Monnet Projects support innovation, knowledge-sharing, and communication on European issues.
Erasmus+ provides the opportunity for organisations to manage projects in three core fields:
There are a broad range of activities that can be carried out, from the design and development of education materials and tools to the organisation of events. More examples are available in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.
The opportunity is open to higher education institutions, as well as other organisations, active in the field of European Affairs established in any country worldwide (with the exception of primary and secondary educational establishments, who may not apply but may contribute to the realisation of activities).
It is not open to the designated European institutions (identified in the Regulation establishing the Erasmus+ programme) pursuing an aim of European interest.
Organisations must apply individually, although projects can include other organisations at a later stage.
Projects should last from 12-24 months.
The applicant is responsible for developing a clear, sustainable strategy supported by a detailed work plan and, if selected for funding, are expected to implement the activities as described.
The role of any other participating organisations, as well as the need for the activities and the direct and indirect beneficiaries should be specified in the application.
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 Projects, although more information on the application process is available from the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.
