Outline

The aim of the Industrial Fellowships programme (formerly AFR-PPP) is to foster the cooperation between Luxembourg based companies active in R&D and public research institutions in Luxembourg and/or abroad. The scheme awards PhD and Postdoc grants to researchers who carry out their PhD and/or postdoc training in collaboration with a company in Luxembourg. The scheme is open to all scientific domains, and do all researchers, regardless of their nationality. Collaborating companies must have a presence in Luxembourg.

The Industrial Fellowship scheme has two strands:

  1. Projects carried out in Luxembourg (IN): More than 50% of research time is spent in Luxembourg, under an employment contract.
  2. Projects carried out abroad (OUT): More than 50% of research time is spent outside Luxembourg, under an employment contract, but at least 25% of the work has to be spent at the company in Luxembourg.
