The European Commission (EU) is inviting applications for its Jean Monnet Policy Debate: Foreign Policy Issues: EU-AFRICA under the Erasmus+ Programme.
Large thematic networks in Higher Education (indicatively one network on internal EU issues and two networks on foreign policy issues addressing specific priorities will be supported this year) will have as primary objective to collect, share and discuss among the partners research findings, content of courses and experiences, products (studies, articles, etc.). Each network will establish a tool allowing the partners to share their academic works and run peer review exercises, also commenting on the posted documents. The coordinator of the network will regularly make a selection of the most innovative and interesting results to be provided to the Commission.
- Maximum EU contribution per network on external policy issues is EUR 1200000.
- For the network on external policy issues: EU-Africa, the applicants (coordinator and full partners) must be:
- Higher education institution (HEI);
- Established in an EU Member State or third country associated to the Programme or in the following third countryies not associated to the Programme: Sub Saharan Africa countries (region 9); Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia (Region 3). HEIs established in EU Member States and third countries associated with the Programme must hold a valid ECHE. An ECHE is not required for participating HEIs in third countries not associated with the Programme.
- Nota Bene for all Networks: The designated European institutions (identified in the Regulation establishing the Erasmus+ Programme) pursuing an aim of European interest are not eligible to apply under this Action.
