letzSCIENCE is an FNR initiative to present the research the FNR supports in augmented reality (AR). From a moon rover, to cancer cells, plasma, diatoms and more, the letzSCIENCE augmented reality app features a growing collection of AR experiences, which all connect to a research area in Luxembourg.
The FNR (Luxembourg National Research Fund) – is the main funder of research in Luxembourg. We invest public money into research projects and science outreach.
WHAT WE DO
The main task of the FNR is to fund research projects. Researchers send proposals for research projects, after which the FNR works with international experts to evaluate the projects. Based on the results of the expert evaluations, the FNR can select which projects to fund. In 2021, 226 new projects were funded.
Connecting research to society is also a big part of our work. We organise large science events such as the Science Festival and Researchers’ Days, offer support for researchers, teachers and citizens to organise their own science themed activities, and run Luxembourg’s largest science website, science.lu.
