Conduct industrial research projects

We help you determine whether your industrial research projects are eligible for this R&D funding measure and inform you on how to prepare a solid application.

Do you want to request financial aid for an early-stage R&D project?

The Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy offers financial support to full-scale industrial research and experimental development (R&D) projects, which can be risky and require substantial resources. 

This aid scheme can fund industrial research aimed at the acquisition of new knowledge and skills for developing new products, processes or services or for significantly improving existing ones. 

It can also fund fundamental research and experimental development. The subsidy can cover a proportion of the eligible costs directly related to industrial research.

We will advise you on: 

  • whether your company would be eligible and 
  • whether this funding scheme is the best one for your specific project

We can also inform you throughout the application process all the way to submission to the Ministry of the Economy.
