COVID-19: Launch of FNR fast-track Call

The FNR has launched a special fast-track Call to provide initial funding for research projects on COVID-19, with a first deadline of Tuesday, 14 April 2020. The aim is to (co-)support short-term projects, or the starting phase of long-term projects. In order to be eligible for the FNR Call, short descriptions of project ideas must first be published on the COVID-19 platform by 8 April.

“The global COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed our society, and has impacted humanity on individual, economic, and social levels. The Luxembourg research community has quickly sprung to action in light of the pandemic: Luxembourgish scientists have the experience and ability to contribute to the world-wide efforts to fight this virus.

The FNR wishes to support researchers so that they can make an impact, both in Luxembourg and on a global scale. To this end, we have launched this fast fast-track call to support both short-term projects and starting phases of long-term projects that will address the current and future challenges of COVID-19.” – Marc Schiltz

Through this Call, the FNR will provide funding of up to 50,000 EUR for a maximum period of 6 months. The first COVID-19 call submission deadline will be on 14 April 2020, 18:00 CET. For proposals that require a longer preparation time, e.g. to merge similar project ideas or to coordinate multidisciplinary teams, a second submission deadline will be on 11 May 2020, 18:00 CET.
