Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Projects (Policy debate with the academic world)

This is an EU grant granting projects supporting innovation, cross-fertilisation and the spread of European Union content. Such projects will be based on unilateral proposals, although the proposed activities may involve other partners and may last between 12 and 24 months. 

- "Innovation" projects explore new angles and different methodologies in view of making European Union subjects more attractive and adapted to various kinds of target populations (e.g. projects on Learning EU @ School); 
- "Cross-fertilisation" projects promote discussion and reflection on European Union issues and enhance knowledge about the Union and its processes. These projects will aim at boosting EU knowledge in specific contexts;
- "Spread content" projects will mainly concern information and dissemination activities.
