Question to the Commission for written answer P-007979/2014
Could the Commission please confirm the number of current Jean Monnet professors and Chairs in North East England?
In the interests of transparency, could the Commission also please confirm their names and the academic institutions with which they are associated?
Answer given on behalf of the Commission by Mr Navracsics
No scholar in the universities of North East England is currently receiving financial support within the context of Jean Monnet activities.
In the interest of transparency and as Jean Monnet beneficiaries continue to hold their title of “Jean Monnet Professors/Chairs” even after their contractual commitments with the Commission has ended, the Honourable Member may want to note the following earlier involvement of North East England’s universities in Jean Monnet activities:
Newcastle University: Prof Ian Ward (1992), Prof Ella Ritchie (1999, 2000) and Prof D. Barlow (1999);
Durham University: Prof. Holly Cullen (1992);
Northumbria Univeristy: Dr Sarah Mercer (1991).
