Outline

With the PEARL programme, the FNR offers Luxembourg research institutions attractive funding to enable them to draw established and internationally recognised researchers from abroad to Luxembourg.

Through the recruitment of outstanding scientists in strategically important areas, the FNR aims to accelerate the development and strengthening of Luxembourg’s national research priorities.

The financial contribution can be used flexibly to implement the research programme at the host institution.

PEARL projects have a lifespan of five years with a financial contribution of between 3-4 MEUR by the FNR. 

Proposals must be submitted jointly by the candidate and the host institution.

**Please note, the deadline for the 2018 PEARL Call has been postponed to 15 November 2017, 14:00 CET.**
