Portugal and Luxembourg foster bilateral scientific cooperation

On 5 April, the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) and FCT signed a Memorandum of Understanding to promote  the collaboration in science and research between the two nations.

In the framework of transnational cooperation the agreement supports the Portuguese participation in joint projects with institutions from Luxembourg and offers the possibility for research groups to strengthen ties that have long connected both countries with significant socioeconomic impact.

Through this Memorandum, research teams will be able to conduct their joint projects in the areas defined in consensus between both national funding agencies, such as Material Sciences, Biomedical and Health Sciences, Sustainable Resource Management, Innovation in Services and Societal Challenges. The FNR and FCT will fund the Luxembourgish and the Portuguese components of successful applications respectively, in accordance with their existing financial practices.
