Call: From June 10th to October 4th, 2024


The Director of the Ramon Llull Institute will make a decision within a maximum period of six months from the date of the publication of the call.

If the maximum period has elapsed without a final decision of the procedure being issued and notified, applicants may consider their applications rejected due to administrative silence.

    In order to receive the subsidy granted, it is necessary to justify a minimum of 50% of the subsidized amount, following the procedure mentioned in the rules. Otherwise, the grant will be revoked.

    A maximum budgetary deviation percentage of 20% is established between the initially budgeted cost and the justified final cost of the subsidized activity, which will not entail a reduction in the amount of the subsidy.

    The deadline to submit supporting documentation is December 15 of the year of the call.
