Launch of 2022 PEARL Call

The FNR is pleased to announce the launch of the 2022 PEARL Call. Pre-proposal deadline is 12 October 2022, 14:00 CET. PEARL projects have a lifespan of five years with a financial contribution of between 3-4 MEUR by the FNR. The financial contribution can be used flexibly to implement the research programme at the host institution.

With the PEARL programme, the FNR offers Luxembourg research institutions the possibility to attract leading researchers from abroad to Luxembourg in view of developing and strengthening research capacity in the country’s key strategic areas.

Prior to submitting an application, PEARL candidates need to undergo an institutional validation process. Interested candidates are therefore invited to contact potential host institutions in Luxembourg as early as possible (at least 8 months prior to deadline) to allow sufficient time for institutional validation of their candidature.
