Jean Monnet Chairs are teaching posts with a specialization in European Union studies for university professors. They are co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. The Chair is an integral part of the hosting higher education institution and is inscribed in the institution’s official academic activities.

The Jean Monnet Chair in European Innovation Policy is the first Chair ever awarded to the Università Europea di Roma (Italy). The Chair holder is Prof. Valeria Falce, Full Professor of Economics Law at the Department of Human Sciences, Faculty of Economics.

The Chair focuses on European innovation policy with a particular attention to single innovation market and intellectual property rights strategy.
