What qualifies as a Jean Monnet Module in Higher Education?
A short teaching programme or course in the field of European Union studies at a higher education institution, focusing on one particular discipline or multidisciplinary in approach, and being one of the following:
- 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);

What is expected of the higher education institution hosting a Jean Monnet Module?
Jean Monnet Modules are required to bring innovative, interesting and specific EU content to their learners; they should also disseminate and exploit the results of the organised teaching and research activities beyond the scope of the stakeholders directly involved.
Coordinators of Jean Monnet Modules are encouraged to:
- publish at least one peer reviewed article during the grant period;
- participate in dissemination and information events at national and European level;
- organise events (lectures, seminars, workshops, etc.) with policy makers at local (e.g. mayors and counsellors), regional and national level;
- disseminate the results of their activities via the organisation of seminars or lectures geared and adapted to the general public and civil society representatives;
- network with other coordinators of Modules, Centres of Excellence, Jean Monnet Chairs and supported Institutions;
- apply open educational resources (OER), publish the summaries, content and schedule of their activities as well as the expected outcomes.
