Jean Monnet

Musical identities and European perspective: an interdisciplinary approach MIDEP, Jean Monnet Module

The Jean Monnet Module led by Professor Mirjana Veselinović-Hofman, deals with academic studies in the field of arts, especially music and musicology that are not commonly associated with EU studies. Due to the fact that there are no EU related studies at the University of Arts in Belgrade and at the Faculty of Music, this project aims at European integration processes in the field of culture and music in order to bring this subject closer to the target group (MA and PhD students of musicology and of the musical performance at the Faculty of Music in Belgrade).The project aims to introduce topics of European integration in the curricula of faculties of arts, which corresponds to one of the principal objectives of the Erasmus+ programme – the sustainable development of Partner Countries in the field of higher education. Promoting excellence in teaching and research in EU studies is one of the first steps in realisation of this project. Research of musical identities belongs to the most vibrant and provocative subjects in current musicology, and their introduction in the academic curricula and teaching, especially in the context of European integration, results in the promotion of the excellence in teaching and research.

Key Action 2 Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices

Strategic Partnerships in Higher Education

Strategic Partnerships are collaborative projects which enable institutions to work together in order to achieve better results, to exchange experience and share innovative practices. These projects are aimed to develop initiatives across more than one sector, more than one field of education, with different types of organisations involved.

Capacity Building in Higher Education

Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education are transnational cooperation projects, based on multilateral partnerships, primarily between higher education institutions from Programme and Partner Countries with the aim to promote modernisation, internationalisation, accessibility of higher education in partner countries, as well European cooperation and intercultural awareness.
