The JUMP programme is now open for proposals. Deadline for the 2023-1 Call is 30 June 2023, 14:00 CET. The FNR has partnered with the Ministry of Economy (MECO) for a pilot add-on to provide supplementary funding to help generate spin-offs.
The FNR JUMP programme is a competitive funding programme, open to all research domains, that is designed to help bridge the technical and funding gap between research-driven discoveries and their commercialisation/utilisation, thereby enhancing the impact of Luxembourg’s research on economy and society.
Panel dates: 20 September 2023: Bio-Medical Projects | 21 September 2023: Technology Projects
The FNR has partnered with the Ministry of Economy (MECO) to provide supplementary funding to meet the above two objectives that aim to generate spin-offs. Through the joint Entrepreneur in Residence-bonus (EiR-bonus) add-on funding tool, implemented within the framework of the FNR-MECO collaborative spin-off programme, the Ministry of Economy aims to contribute to progressively improving the national framework of support to spin-off creation and to increase the long-term success rates of this type of new ventures. A typical spin-off process entails different phases (awareness creation, detection, pre-screening, validation, and launch).
