Visiting Professorships

In order to raise the visibility and prestige of studies and research into Catalan language and culture abroad, the Institut Ramon Llull promotes the creation of professorships and studies centres at universities of the highest international reputation, some with a long and solid history in the field of Catalan language and culture. The professorships and centres help to foster international dissemination of research in the Humanities and Social Sciences disciplines. They also facilitate the mobility of teachers from Catalan universities and all the other universities in the Institut Ramon Llull Network.
