[1] Here is an excerpt from European Commission’s website on the Jean Monnet Chair grant: “Jean Monnet Chairs are designed to: (1) deepen teaching in EU studies embodied in the official curriculum of a higher education institution and (2) provide in-depth teaching on EU matters in areas increasingly in demand in the labour market. Jean Monnet Chairs are also encouraged to provide open educational resources and involve open education activities in their work to increase the flexibility and accessibility of learning.” Erasmus:
