Posted: 12 August, 2019
Irish universities have been awarded nearly €2m in EU funding to support activities under the Erasmus+ Programme’s Jean Monnet Action. Three Universities will receive funds for Chairs with two universities qualifying for support in the delivery of modules.
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.
Participation in the Jean Monnet Programme is among the activities promoted by the Erasmus+ National Agency at the Higher Education Authority.
