The Directorate of Defence of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, the Ministry of the Economy, the National Research Fund and Luxinnovation have joined forces to offer a new funding opportunity to companies and research organisations looking to develop dual-use defence technologies (products, services and systems). The 2022 Joint defence call Edition will focus on SPACE and MATERIALS. The call text is available here.
The joint defence call launched on 3 June 2022 provides financial incentives to applicants who want to demonstrate the relevance of their research results, materials, technologies, products and/or solutions as well as their potential benefit for defence applications. This initiative is based on the Luxembourg Government’s ambition to support the Luxembourg industry in getting access to the defence market. While both individual and collaborative projects proposals are possible, cooperation between companies and research organisations is encouraged.
The webinar which will be held on June 10th will explain how to prepare applications in order to respond to the two-phased joint call for defence projects, launched on 3 June and open until the 29 July (deadline for project outlines). It will provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about the objectives and modalities of the call.
Registrations for the webinar are open here.
