Key points regarding your potential participation

  • What is included for any participant: all the workshops, talks and program content.

  • What all participants would be covering from their side: Transportation costs and meals (maximum € 20 per 4 meals per person a day to be directly paid to the food provider).

  • 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, 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.

  • Is it possible to participate in more than 4 sprints? If you want to participate in more than 6 sprints, you can request it in the form but in principle, we can only guarantee an official spot in those 4 sprints. 

  • The spots will be allocated by order of arrival of your confirmation form, so hurry up in order to grant your spot latest August 29th
