Launch of 2021 CORE Call

The FNR hereby launches the 2021 CORE Call for proposals. Deadline for submission is Wednesday, 21 April 2021, 14:00 CET. CORE is the central programme of the FNR. A multi-annual thematic research programme, the prime objective of CORE is to strengthen the scientific quality of Luxembourg’s public research in the country’s research priorities.

The call deadlines of CORE and OPEN are both on Wednesday, 21 April 2021 at 14:00 CET. The PI(s) and the host institution(s) are responsible in selecting the appropriate funding programme. Please contact FNR upfront in case of questions. If a same project is submitted in both programmes, it will not be reviewed and excluded from the selection process.

New for 2021

  • The CORE junior track has been revised: Its purpose has been revisited, taking out all direct references to “career development” and refocusing it to “CORE project funding” for first-time project leaders. The target population has been further specified. Support for mentorship is offered as an optional feature.
  • The FNR has introduced a new narrative-style CV in its funding programmes, which in conjunction with an updated ORCiD profile, allows the full picture of a researcher to be evaluated. The goal is to allow an applicant to be more fairly evaluated on their scientific vision, appropriate experience, and broader contributions to science and society, beyond the limited focus of metrics and quantitative lists.
  • Extension of international collaborations: CORE International
