The FNR is pleased to communicate that 4 of 8 eligible Proof of Concept projects have been accepted in the 2019-2 JUMP Call, an FNR commitment of 857.900 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.
