The FNR hereby launches the 2019 CORE Call for proposals. Deadline for submission is Thursday, 11 April 2019, 14:00 CET.
New for 2019 Call
From the CORE 2019 Call onward, a specific format requirement for the project description is introduced. The FNR implements character limits for the project description instead of page limits. The character limitation has successfully been introduced in other FNR programmes already. Please carefully follow the specifications for the Proposal Project Description defined in the CORE Application Guidelines in section 6.1. All applications have to follow these requirements and it is mandatory to use the CORE 2019 Project Description Form.
Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA)
The FNR has signed the “Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA)” and therefore has introduced changes in how it assesses research proposals. This means that FNR evaluates quality and impact independently of journal-based metrics and give value to all research outputs. The call related guidelines have been adapted accordingly.
**UPDATE on bi-lateral collaboration, 22 January 2019: The Portuguese National Funding Agency for Science, Research and Technology (FCT, Portugal) has decided not to join the CORE 2019 call. No bi-lateral projects between researchers in Luxembourg and their colleagues in Portugal will be supported in the call 2019.**
