Launch of ATTRACT 2021 Call for proposals

The FNR is pleased to announce that the 2021 ATTRACT Call for proposals is now open. Deadline for pre-proposals is Friday, 13 November 2020, 14:00 CET – full proposal deadline is Friday, 12 February 2021. 

The ATTRACT programme is designed for researchers not yet established in Luxembourg, who demonstrate the potential to become leaders in their field of research. The scheme offers promising junior researchers the opportunity to set up their own research team within one of the country’s research institutions.

Researchers are eligible between 2 and 8 years after their PhD, they must have an outstanding track record in their field which has to fit strategically to the research agenda of the Luxembourg host institution.

New starting with this Call

  • On 20 December 2019, the Luxembourg Government has adopted the “National Research and Innovation Strategy for Luxembourg” with the National Research Priorities (NRP). Proposals submitted under the ATTRACT programme need to align with the National Research Priorities.
  • Applicants (and other researchers directly involved in the project) need to indicate their ORCID identifier.
  • Applicants are required to devise a leadership development plan. Applicants are also expected to give consideration to diversity and inclusion aspects in the development of their research group.
