Activity 2: Jean Monnet chairs
What is it?
The ERASMUS + Program enables higher education institutions to provide studies specialized in European Union matters for university lecturers. Institutions wishing to participate have to support holders of chairs in their teaching, research and reflection activities. They must also allow allowing a wide range of curricula to benefit from the courses.
What type of activities?
- Deepen studies about Europe, being part of the program of higher education.
- Provide a specialized education about European issues as areas increasingly required in the labour market.
- Offer free educational supplies and provide educational open activities in order to facilitate access to learning.
The Jean Monnet Chairs have a 3 years’ duration and include at least 90 hours of teaching per academic year. This teaching is composed of classes, professors, seminars, tutorials and classes at distance but no individual class.
