Luxinnovation – National Contact Point for EU funding

Luxinnovation is an organisation that contributes to the economic development of Luxembourg by fostering innovation, fuelling international growth and attracting foreign direct investment. It is entrusted with the role of National Contact Point (NCP) for Horizon 2020 and related EU Research and Innovation funding programmes. We provide information, advice and guidance to applicants for EU research and innovation funding.

Building on our decade-long experience of EU funding programmes, we are able to respond to questions on where to get up-to-date information on programmes and calls for project proposals, what programmes are the most suitable for you or where and how to find European partners.

Despite an effort to make rules more consistent and simple within Horizon 2020, it is vital to know the "do’s and don’t’s" of the EU funding process to submit a successful project. Luxinnovation has established a series of tools to support research organisations and companies, such as information, strategic input, partner search, project proposal assistance and support for project promoters.

Strong partnerships in and outside of Luxembourg

As NCP, we are not isolated but cooperate with our counterparts all over Europe, as well as with consultants and the European Commission. This allows us to continuously improve our service, so that you may benefit from best practice and experience gathered on a European level.

Horizon 2020 puts special emphasis on bringing EU funding to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) provides specialised support for innovative SMEs. In Luxembourg, the EEN is represented by Luxinnovation, the Chamber of Commerce and the Chambre des Métiers.

NCP and Luxinnovation

Luxinnovation has been contributing to making the Luxembourg economy more innovative for over 25 years. The Ministry for Higher Education and Research has appointed Luxinnovation as NCP. European R&D funding has been gaining importance, and not only because of the financial opportunities involved. It is only by cooperating with European partners that important projects for the future can succeed.

Advice on European R&D funding is, however, only one of Luxinnovation’s many service lines. Our wide range of services allows us to create synergies to assist you even better. Regardless of whether you are a novice or an EU research and innovation funding veteran, your NCP can help you.
