International cooperation: Round-up of 2020 retained INTER projects

In 2020, the FNR committed 17.4 MEUR of funding to 39 bi- and multilateral projects via its INTER scheme to foster international cooperation. 

The INTER Programme is the FNR’s main funding instrument to foster international collaboration. It aims to give Luxembourg’s public research a higher profile in the international context by providing funding for international collaboration. INTER enables the FNR to initiate bi or multilateral arrangements for project calls in conjunction with other national or international funding bodies.
