Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027.
Erasmus+ strengthens its efforts to increase the opportunities offered to more participants and to a wider range of organisations, focusing on its qualitative impact and contributing to more inclusive and cohesive, greener and digitally fit societies.
The present call falls under the Jean Monnet Actions of the Erasmus+ Programme. The Jean Monnet Action in the field of Higher Education supports Teaching and Research in the field of European Union studies worldwide.
The Jean Monnet “Teaching and Research” actions will promote excellence in teaching and research in the field of European Union studies worldwide, foster the dialogue between the academic world and society, including local and state level policy-makers, civil servants, civil society actors, representatives of the different levels of education and of the media and generate knowledge and insights in support of EU policy-making and strengthen the role of the EU within Europe and in a globalised world. Additionally, actions under this Call will reach out to a wider public and spread knowledge about the EU to the wider society bringing the EU closer to the public. The action also strives to function as a vector for public diplomacy towards partner countries, promoting EU values and enhancing the visibility of what the European Union actually stands for and what it intends to achieve.
Chairs are teaching posts with a specialisation in European Union studies for university professors for a duration of three years. A Jean Monnet Chair is held by only one professor, who provides the minimum of 90 teaching hours per academic year. The Chair may also have a team to support and enhance the activities of the Chair, including the provision of additional teaching hours.
