Jean Monnet Module “Moving the EU forward”



The Institute of European Integration and Policy and the Department of Political Science and Public Administration of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens are pleased to announce the launch of the Jean Monnet Module “Moving the EU forward”.

The three-year module, co-financed by the EU Erasmus + programme, is a tailor made teaching programme to the contemporary teaching and research needs that the EU crisis revealed as a new field of EU interdisciplinary studies. It aims at promoting, enhancing and fostering knowledge and research on all contemporary EU policy issues, through interactive and innovative teaching methods (debates, case-studies, simulation, feedback process etc) that enable the active involvement of the participants. The multidisciplinary approach of the teaching activities aims at delivering thorough theoretical and practical knowledge on how the EU can “move forward”.

It comprises the following teaching activities, addressed to graduate, post-graduate, PhD students and young researchers from EU and non-EU countries:

  • “Athens Summer School”
  • “Athens PhD seminars”
  • “Athens EU model”

These activities are targeted to motivated and high-skilled national and foreign students from EU and non-EU countries, who are eager to acquire solid and comprehensive background knowledge on how EU crisis is streamed into policy issues.

It is not only a teaching programme on EU studies, but it aspires to become a unique opportunity for creative dialogue among participating students , academia and stakeholders on  the main challenges that EU faces.

Join our activities and let’s move the EU forward together!
