Academic and Cultural Activities
Grants for academic and cultural activities at universities abroad that Catalan Studies programmes
The Institut Ramon Llull promotes and offers support to the organisation of academic and cultural activities (workshops, seminars, concerts, cultural weeks, etc.) at universities abroad that offer programmes in Catalan Studies.
These activities aim to raise the visibility and impact of Catalan Studies Programmes offered at universities that focus on expanding the knowledge of, and research on, Catalan language, literature and culture, thus contributing to improving the quality of the programmes and, at the same time, expanding awareness of the Catalan language and culture abroad.
To achieve this, the Institut periodically offers the universities a range of different academic or cultural activities or provides support to those universities choosing to present their own academic or cultural projects.
Following are preferential criteria for the award of support:
- the degree of academic or cultural interest of the activity in question
- the professional experience of the participants
- the potential impact of the activity and resulting cultural dialogue with the host country.
- the degree of involvement of the university, other institutions and cultural groups.
The grants are designed to fully or partially cover the expenses of honoraria, accommodation and transportation (tourist class).
Grants supporting academic and cultural activities may be requested throughout the academic year. Applications, together with required documentation, must be received by the Institut Ramon Llull within two months of the start date of the activity.
The applications will be assessed by a committee and priorities will be established in accordance with the available budget.
Professors of Catalan Studies can access the documents required in applying for funding assistance from the IRL to organize cultural or academic activities at xarxallull.cat.
