Within the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme, funding is also allocated to the so called “Centralised Actions” which are administered by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).
The Jean Monnet initiative offers opportunities in the field of higher education and in other fields of education and training, contributing to the spread of knowledge about European Union integration matters.
The following actions are supported:
- Jean Monnet Actions in the field of higher education
- Jean Monnet Actions in other fields of education and training
Learning about the objectives and the functioning of the European Union is an important part of promoting active citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination.
The overall objective is to promote a better understanding, both in general education and vocational training (ISCED 1–4), of the European Union and the functioning of its institutions and to address the widespread lack of knowledge of the European Union and a lot of disinformation, these in turn increase people’s disenchantment about the Union and its policies.
