Introduction

The Manchester Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, a partnership between the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University, aims to develop a platform to strengthen the intellectual community in European Studies (broadly defined), while also facilitating local and regional links with practitioners, researchers, students and others interested in European affairs.

As part of its commitment to the development of teaching excellence, the Manchester JMCE is now inviting proposals for projects that seek to improve the learning experience of students studying any aspect of ‘Europe’, broadly defined.

The Centre does not wish to be prescriptive in the projects it will fund, but funds could, for example, be sought to: develop students’ understanding of pan-European issues, such as by inviting a guest speaker (academic/policy-maker, etc.) to give a lecture to students, improve student engagement with European institutions, involve students in promoting Europe, facilitating links with European minority groups in Manchester, etc.

Funds up to a maximum of £500 per project may be sought from the JMCE.

Projects funded through this call should take place between October 2015 and February 2017.
