European Institute awarded a European Commission Jean Monnet grant
6 July 2012
The European Institute has been awarded a new year-long grant from the Jean Monnet Programme, Information and Research Activities. Part of the EU's Lifelong Learning Programme, this action is specifically directed at Higher Education Institutions working to promote discussion, reflection and knowledge about the process of European integration.
Our ambitious programme for next year will include the continuation of established events series - such as the Belgian Ambassador's Salon Series; our EU Public Policy Series; the annual Sakharov Debate on Human Rights in Europe held with the European Parliament Office in the UK; or an events cycle to be co-organised with UCLU's European Society. We are also breaking new ground, developing European-specific links under UCL's new Collaborative with US-university Yale, among other exciting prospects.
