Results 2018-2 Pathfinder Call

The FNR is pleased to communicate that 10 of 15 eligible Pathfinder projects have been accepted in the 2018-2 JUMP Call, an FNR commitment of 351,600 EUR.

The FNR JUMP programme (formerly PoC) 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. The programme has two strands: Pathfinder and Proof of Concept. (Proof of Concept funding results from the 2018-2 JUMP Call to follow soon).
