On Thursday 24 November 2016, Dr Pietro De Matteis from the European Commission will visit the Hawke EU Centre for Mobilities, Migrations and Cultural Transformations delivered an information seminar on funding opportunities for researchers at UniSA under the Jean Monnet funding scheme.
The Jean Monnet Activities under the Erasmus+ Programme aim at stimulating teaching and research in European Union studies and foster dialogue between academics and decision-makers in the EU and around the world. This is done by funding Centres of Excellence within a University, Networks of Universities, Academic Modules, Professorships as well as Project and Associations.
European Union studies comprise the study of Europe in its entirety with particular emphasis on the European integration process in both its internal and external aspects. The discipline also covers the role of the EU in a globalised world and in promoting an active citizenship and dialogue between people and cultures.
