Conduct experimental development projects

Apply for support to implement projects aimed at developing new or improved products, processes and services.

Do you want to request financial aid for an experimental development project?

The Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy offers financial support for research and development (R&D) projects focusing on experimental development. Such projects involve acquiring, combining, shaping and using scientific, technological and commercial knowledge and skills with a view to develop new or improved products, processes and services. 

Unlike fundamental and industrial research, experimental development forms a bridge between conceptual principles and practical implementation. It might result in a product that is ready for implementation. The subsidy can cover a proportion of the eligible costs directly related to experimental development.

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.
