Luxinnovation, the national innovation agency and your National Contact Point for European funding, assists you in finding the best applicants from around the world and helps the candidate in preparing the research proposal.
Any legal entity based in Luxembourg, public or private, willing to host a postdoctoral researcher (applicant) in Luxembourg for up to 2 years for a research and innovation project. Career development and training of the applicants are an integral part of the project and need to be considered in the project description. Non-academic organisations are not required to involve academic partners, but public-private partnerships can be foreseen in the form of exchanges (so-called secondments) of the applicant from one to the other (up to 8 months which can be split between several partner organisations). The proposal is written mostly by the applicant with guidance from you, their host, for example in defining the research question. You can propose your own applicants or we can help you find them among the best experts around the world, based on their publication record in the domains you are looking for. You can submit several independent proposals with different applicants in parallel.
What is in it for you?
A funded researcher that will bring his or her academic knowledge and network to your organisation.
Why react ASAP?
The next deadline for the final proposal submission is in September 2022, meaning that successful projects can start around May 2023. However, finding appropriate applicants (see below) takes a lot of time – so does training and proposal writing.
