On Monday, 15 January 2018, the 2018-21 multi-annual contract between the FNR and the Government was officially signed by Marc Hansen (Minister Delegate for Higher Education and Research), Véronique Hoffeld (Chair of the Board of the FNR) and Marc Schiltz (FNR Secretary General).
Within the framework of this multi-annual contract, which covers the years 2018 to 2021, the budget of the FNR is set at 264,41 MEUR, an increase of 11% compared to the multi-annual contract of 2014-17.
The budget allocation enables the FNR to implement its three strategic objectives, which are:
- Strengthen the foundation of public research;
- Contribute to shaping the future of Luxembourg;
- Promote innovation in public research organisation.
In total, the Luxembourg Government is investing 1.44 BEUR in research and higher education for the period 2018 to 2021. The financial means made available by the Government has thus grown by 284 MEUR, corresponding to a 25% increase compared to the period from 2014 to 2017.
