Venue University of Education Freiburg/Germany and Online
Organisation The Jean Monnet Chair Freiburg for European Education in collaboration with the Center for Continuing Teacher Education of the University of Education Freiburg

The aim of the project Jean Monnet Chair Freiburg for European Education (JMC-FrEE) is the promotion of basic and in-depth knowledge on European Integration, esp. on European Education. The topic Dealing with Diversity in Education is especially emphasized. Our main objective is to provide expert guidance to future teachers about European matters, and to prepare them to organize learning and teaching processes in a European context. They should be prepared in Teacher Training for the education of the next generation of active European citizens, both theoretically and practically. There are three main areas of our multidisciplinary teaching and research activities:

  • Europeanization of Education
  • Intercultural Education (esp. Multilingual Education) in Europe
  • Education for disadvantaged children (esp. from the Roma-minority) in Europe.

With the support of the ERASMUS+ Programme of the European Union
