International Québec-Luxembourg AUDACE program

The Chief Scientist of Québec and the Directorate of Societal Challenges and Intersectoral Networks are please to announce a new call for bilateral projects in the framework of the AUDACE programme. In last May, the Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ) with the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to design a Québec-Luxembourg AUDACE program. Convinced that an intersectoral approach will open up novel research perspectives and in the perspective to foster cross-border collaboration between the scientific communities of Québec and Luxembourg, the FRQ and FNR decided to propose a bilateral research program align to the objectives of the FRQ AUDACE program. This program will support intersectoral innovative projects with the potential to radically transform research and creation

With this bilateral program, the FRQ and FNR intend to stimulate favourable conditions for initiating projects with a high level of risk and offer to the researchers from Québec and Luxembourg favourable conditions for initiating projects with a high level of risk and the potential for high impacts, be they scientific, social, economic, technological, cultural, aesthetic, etc. Three annual bilateral calls are foreseen.

The first call for proposals of the international Québec-Luxembourg AUDACE one will be launched in July. We invite the scientific community to apply in great number.
