2020 Jean Monnet Prize

September 1, 2020

Between the COVID19 pandemic and the preparation for the Conference on the Future of Europe, 2020 is proving an intense year for European activities and grassroots mobilisation. Awarded annually, the Jean Monnet Prize for European Integration recognises and celebrates achievements that contribute to supporting and strengthening European integration.

What is the Jean Monnet Prize for European integration?

The Jean Monnet Prize for European Integration aims at honouring Jean Monnet’s memory and life achievements. It does so by rewarding talented individuals or groups having contributed to supporting or strengthening European Integration through a project they designed and implemented. The winning project receives a €1,500 grant.

The 2020 Jean Monnet Prize is organised under the patronage of the European Parliament and with the support of our pro-European partners.

Who can apply?

All projects either implemented or under implementation promoting European integration can apply to the Jean Monnet Prize.

EuropeanConstitution.eu takes a broad view of European integration and believes it is as much about the people than about institutions. Many projects can therefore be considered to contribute to European integration or promote the European spirit.

You bring European citizens together across borders? Apply! You create or facilitate exchange programmes within the EU? Apply! Do you contribute to language learning or cultural encounters? Apply! Does your project promote the discovery of European history or shared knowledge about our heritage? Apply!

When and how can I apply?

The Jean Monnet Prize is awarded annually on 9 November, on the day of Jean Monnet’s birth.

The application period for the 2020 edition runs from 9 August to 9 October 2020, 23:59 CET. All applications are to be made through our website. The online application form can be found here.
