Bitamine Faktoria’s Statement
OPEN CALLS ARE SUSPENDED

Due to the current state of alarm ordered by the Spanish Government to face the health crisis caused by the Covid-19, Bitamine Faktoria suspends all open calls and leaves applications on hold.

We hope to reopen the reception of applications once this exceptional period has ended, which forces us to confine ourselves and prevents us from regular work. Applications received to date will be taken into account when the process restarts.

Thank you all for your understanding. Take care of yourself and your family (in the broadest sense). Let us all take care of ourselves.
