AFR-PPP has two strands:

  1. Projects carried out in Luxembourg (IN): More than 50% of research time is spent in Luxembourg, under an employment contract.
  2. Projects carried out abroad (OUT): More than 50% of research time is spent outside Luxembourg, under an employment contract, but at least 25% of the work has to be spent at the company in Luxembourg.

  • PhD grants are funded for a maximum for 4 years.

FUNDING SPECIFICS

The FNR pays the host institution a predefined amount towards the annual salary costs of the researcher on the AFR-PPP project. Collaborating companies are required to contribute with 15% of the FNR funding to the salary of the grantee.

APPLICATION INFORMATION
