FWF will act as lead-agency and allows for bilateral consortia (FWF-FNR), but also for trilateral consortia (FWF-FNR + e.g DFG, SNSF, NCN (Poland), South Tyrol). For more info please check here 

Luxembourg based researchers participating in the above calls, have to submit an INTER proposal to the FNR via our online grant management system within 5 working days after the deadline (for proposals only, not for the letter of intent).

APPLICATION INFORMATION

1. WHERE TO APPLY

In order to determine whether the FWF or FNR will serve as Lead Agency, applicants must calculate the person months of the involved collaborators in the project beforehand (this includes any contributing collaborators). The agency funding the part of the project with the most person months will serve as the Lead Agency.

2. WHEN TO APPLY

Applications for which the FNR acts as Lead Agency must be submitted by the FNR’s annual CORE deadline. Applications for which the FWF serves as lead agency can be submitted anytime.

  • Please note all joint applications must also be submitted to the FNR by the Luxembourg-based scientist, even if the FNR is not the lead agency.
  • This must be done no later than 5 days after the lead agency deadline, and the FNR INTER documents must be included in the submission.

3. EVALUATION

The proposal is evaluated by the lead agency only, according to national rules. The partner funding organisation accepts the evaluation results as a basis for its decision process.
