International cooperation: Round-up of 2017 funded INTER projects

In 2017, the FNR committed funding to 23 bi- and multilateral projects via its INTER scheme to foster international cooperation, an FNR commitment of 10.12 MEUR.

The INTER Programme is the FNR’s main funding instrument to foster international collaboration. It aims to give Luxembourg’s public research a higher profile in the international context by providing funding for international collaboration. INTER enables the FNR to initiate bi or multilateral arrangements for project calls in conjunction with other national or international funding bodies.
