You have been selected with your project as one of the official participants for Civichub program!

IMPORTANT: THIS IS NOT ALL! Now it all depends on you to confirm your participation. We can just offer 20 official participants If you really want to enroll, you need to fill up this application form ASAP (and latest August 29th), since +20 projects like yours have been selected and want to want to take part of it with 2 people so slots will be allocated by arrival of this confirmation form




What do you need to know as an official participant?

  • What is included for an official participant: the workshops and a specialized tutor for your project during the 4 months.

  • What are official participants covering from their side: Transportation costs and meals (maximum € 20 per 4 meals a day to be directly paid to the food provider upon arrival before each encounter starts).

  • What do we ask for in return: The funds of the Generalitat are conditioned to a minimum participation of 70% of the program by the participants. Therefore, in order to offer you an official place we ask for a minimum participation in 4 of the 6 springs. If it is frankly difficult for at least one person on your team to participate in the 4 sprints, you can do 1 of these sprints in a deferred way with the materials that will be posted and sent on each sprint but also.

  • Up to 2 people per team: We can only grant a full place to up to two people for each project as long as both people can commit to participating in a minimum of 4 encounters/sprints between September and December (it is not essential but it is advisable that both people participate in the same encounters). In the case that you participate 2 people of the same project, one of the places must be for the same person who participates in the 4 and the other place can be rotating but always someone in the 4 springs that you choose. We would appreciate it if this second person is the one that can foreseeably come to the maximum of possible meetings (ideally also to 4 but it is not essential).

  • Is it possible to participate in more than 4 sprints? If you want to participate in more than 6, you can request it in the form but in principle, we can only guarantee an official spot in those 4. What we can assure you is that you can participate in the 6 even if it is covering for your account accommodation of the 2 extra encounters (this applies to 2 people per project).

  • The spots will be allocated by order of arrival of your confirmation so we can't grant when you fill up the confirmation form you will still have 2 spots

  • Can more than 2 people come per project? Regardless of the second place complete and if you want more people of the team to participate in specific encounters / sprints (although they would not be with the conditions mentioned for the "official" places), they must also complete the form indicating in which sprints they will participate with a deadline Monday, August 27
