Luxembourg and Singapore have signed an agreement which aims to strengthen cooperation within certain research fields. Signed by Luxembourg’s “Fonds national de la recherche” (FNR) and Singapore’s National Research Foundation (NRF), the agreement lays the foundations for the joint funding of collaborative research projects in certain shared areas of interest, such as materials science (with an emphasis on 3D printing and composite materials) and business analytics, most notably fintechs.

The agreement, which was signed in the presence of Xavier Bettel, Prime Minister of Luxembourg, and Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of Singapore, stipulates that each party will, in their own turn, be responsible for putting forth proposals for collaborative research projects. This means that each party will have the opportunity to come forth with their own research proposal, providing that it is of mutual interest.

Call - Research - Proposals - FNR - Research

The first call for research proposals will be initiated by the FNR in early 2017. From it, up to three collaborative research projects within the field of materials science and 3D printing or business analytics will be selected for funding. The funding will cover up to a period of three years for each project with a maximum funding of 980,000 euros per project. In order to be selected for the joint funding, the projects much present a high level of cooperation between the two nations’ research teams, from the planning and development of the project to its execution.

As Marc Schiltz, Secretary General of the FNR, explains, this agreement comes from Luxembourg and Singapore’s...
