The University of Limerick, University College Cork and Trinity College Dublin have been awarded a combined total of €114,226 of EU funding under the Jean Monnet Action.

Jean Monnet Activities are designed to promote excellence in teaching and research in the field of European Union studies worldwide. The activities also foster the dialogue between the academic world and policy-makers, in particular with the aim of enhancing governance of EU policies.

The awards made to the three universities cover a Jean Monnet Chair at TCD, a course module supporting the principle of European Integration  at UL and a project at UCC aimed at the wider policy debate with the academic world.

Jean Monnet is regarded as one of the founding figures of the European Union.
