Practical Tips for Jean Monnet Project Bids - Dr. Dimitris Tsarouhas, HSS Visiting Fellow
Dr. Dimitris Tsarouhas is Jean Monnet Chair in EU Politics and Assistant Professor at the Department of International Relations at Bilkent University. He is the author of Social Democracy in Sweden (London and New York: IB Tauris, 2008) and co-editor of Bridging the Real Divide: Social and Regional Policy in Turkey's EU Accession Process (Ankara: METU University Press 2007). His research interests include welfare politics, Europeanization, political economy and EU-Turkey relations. He has published on these issues in journals such as New Political Economy, Public Administration, Social Politics, Social Policy & Administration and European Journal of Industrial Relations.
The workshop aims to share the Fellow's experience in bidding for Jean Monnet projects and the Jean Monnet Chair project in particular. Given that such projects are highly prestigious and EU funded, are awarded in the form of grants and with only a minimum of bureaucracy involved makes them particularly attractive to scholars. A short presentation outlining the main elements of the Jean Monnet project will be outlined, followed by an outline that focuses on advisable strategies to maximize success. Considering the competitive nature of such projects, such strategies will enable participants to economize on form-filling and concentrate on aspects of their application most likely to deliver positive returns. The workshop is primarily aimed at early career researchers at Queen Mary but not limited to them.
