The 2021 PEARL Call for proposals is now open. Pre-proposal deadline is Tuesday, 13 October 2020, 14:00 CET – full proposal deadline is Friday, 12 February 2021, 14:00 CET.

With the PEARL programme, the FNR offers Luxembourg research institutions attractive funding to enable them to draw established and internationally recognised researchers from abroad to Luxembourg. The objective of the programme is to attract leading researchers that will develop a research programme in areas of strategic importance to Luxembourg with the potential to generate long term impact.

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. Co-funding by the institution is expected.
