RESCOM in Brief

Contacts at the FNR: Dr Carlo Duprel and Jill Mousel

The objective of the Support for Research Communication (RESCOM) scheme is to provide competitive funding to support communication between researchers in view of disseminating and exchanging scientific outcomes. Thus the FNR provides co-funding for the organisation of outstanding International Scientific Conferences and Lecture Series in Luxembourg, as well as for the publication of Scientific Monographs.

International Scientific Conferences (ISC) are events that provide the opportunity for leading scientists and young researchers to meet for discussion on the most relevant and most recent developments in their fields of research. International Scientific Conferences should bring together more than 100 researchers from more than five countries, and should be open to scientists world-wide from academic and private sectors. The presented topics should be at the forefront of scientific research and interdisciplinary when appropriate. In addition to keynotes and lectures, the conference should also include poster sessions, round table discussions and/or discussion groups. The FNR encourages the submission of applications for International Conferences which are part of an existing series, or which are organised in collaboration with renowned partners.

Lecture Series (LS) are a forum for the exchange of ideas, intellectual enrichment and for community building bringing together the Luxembourg research community at large(e.g. researchers, scientists, faculty, PhD students and other informed local stakeholders from various public and private institutions and disciplines). Lecture Series consist of lectures by highly recognised researchers from institutions across Europe or the rest of the world whose research results impact the research landscape. The Lectures should provide overviews of the current state of research and innovation, stimulate cross- and/or interdisciplinary discussion of pioneering ideas, and explore perspectives on emerging disciplines.

Scientific Monographs promote the publication of scientific monographs that make outstanding results of research accessible to an interested audience and expand the frontiers of knowledge in that particular field. A scientific monograph is a detailed, specialist work of writing on a single subject or on a specific aspect of a subject written by a qualified researcher in the field. A monograph is always a self-contained, stand-alone book.
