Since 1999, the FNR has fostered the creation of a pool of knowledge and expertise in Luxembourg and has constantly striven for optimal conditions in national research to bear international comparison. With its current funding activities for public research, the FNR pursues thus a three-fold strategic objective: 1. supporting researchers to build up scientific quality and excellence; 2. contributing to a favorable research environment; 3. promoting scientific culture. The FNR is funding research through various research programmes and grant schemes.
