Jean Monnet Chairs and Centre of Excellence

The Jean Monnet Project is an initiative by the European Commission to provide funding to assist in the development of specialized teaching, at a university level, in European Union affairs. Assistance is provided by the creation and maintenance of professorial chairs, permanent and short courses, and by designation of Centres of Excellence.

The Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen hosts one of the Jean Monnet Centres of Excellence, designated as such by the European Commission in 1999. This has provided a framework for enhancing and stimulating cooperation, teaching, and research in the field of European Studies broadly defined and embracing in particular the disciplines of law, economics, history and political science.

From time to time the Centre of Excellence organizes lectures by distinguished figures in the field of European affairs and also organizes conferences on various European issues.
