Launch of Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in Kyushu University, Second Stage (November 2020)

Now we are pleased to announce that a new project, the “Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence-Kyushu, Second Stage (JMCoE-Q2)”, starting on 17 November 2020 and continuing to 16 November 2023, (due to one-year extension, four years to 16 November 2024) will allow us to again carry out a wide range of activities in education, research, outreach, and academic exchange, and to contribute to the globalization efforts of Kyushu University through the further deepening and development of EU research and education.

<Objectives>
The main objective of JMCOE-Q2 is to create a multi-layered platform in the Kyushu region of Japan to consider the future of EU integration and the globalization of education and research. The platform will focus on three issues: (1) “Internal Challenges” surrounding EU integration; (2) “External Challenges,” focusing on EU-Japan relations; and, (3) “Global Challenges” that the whole world, including the EU and Japan, are facing.

<Contents of Activities>
In the field of education and targeting students, JMCoE-Q2 will expand and diversify the EU studies-related curriculum of the EU-DP, and EU study summer course, and EU study tour will be conducted. In the field of research and targeting researchers, JMCoE-Q2 will focus on the three layers of the platform as described above, with a particular focus on inter-disciplinary research on energy and resources, a field where Kyushu University has particular strengths and expertise. In the field of outreach and targeting civil society, JMCoE-Q2 will adopt a range of measures designed for the local business community and public more generally in order to cultivate a richer knowledge and a wider vision of the EU and Europe.


Aim of JMCoE

A Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence is a focal point of competence and knowledge on European Union subjects. A Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence gathers the expertise and competences of high-level experts and aims at developing synergies between the various disciplines and resources in European studies, as well as at creating joint transnational activities and structural links with academic institutions in other countries. It also ensures openness to civil society. Jean Monnet Centres of Excellence have a major role in reaching out to students from faculties not normally dealing with European Union issues as well as to policy makers, civil servants, organised civil society and the general public at large.

In Japan, Kobe University was adopted as JMCoE in 2015 and 2018. More than a hundred of Jean Monnet Centres of Excellence had been established in the world, and it is being developed as a global brand.

Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence-Kyushu (JMCoE-Q)

Kyushu University first strengthened its expertise on EU matters while acting as the consortium leader of the EU Institute in Japan, Kyushu (EUIJ-Kyushu), which was funded by the European Commission. The university actively promoted EU-related education and research during this time. In recognition of the achievements of EUIJ-Kyushu, Kyushu University was then selected as a Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence in Japan in 2016 (the project name was “Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence-Kyushu (JMCoE-Q)”) and developed a strategic three-year plan, which ended in 2019.

Now we are pleased to announce that a new project, the “Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence-Kyushu, Second Stage (JMCoE-Q2)”, starting in November 2020 and continuing to November 2023, (due to one-year extension, to November 2024) will allow us to again carry out a wide range of activities in education, research, outreach, and academic exchange, and to contribute to the globalization efforts of Kyushu University through the further deepening and development of EU research and education.
