    On 22 April 2020, by decision C(2020)9013, the Commission gave permission to Federica Mogherini, the former Vice-President/High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs, to apply for the post of Rector of the College of Europe, with the condition that she does not get involved in budgetary matters. Indeed, half of the school’s budget is financed through the Jean Monnet programme.

    While the procedure is subject to strict confidentiality, Ms Mogherini’s candidacy has received wide publicity, having been announced in a document signed by the President of the Commission herself.

    She was nominated by the Academic Council on 14 May 2020 and her appopintment may be endorsed by the Administration Council in June 2020, even though it does not seem to have received any application documents.
