Overview

Structure of the research system

Luxembourg’s research system is pictured in the organigram below.

 

The structure of Luxembourg’s national research system (NRS) is straightforward. Policy makers (blue boxes) are headed by the Superior Committee for Research and Innovation, chaired by the Ministers of the Economy and Foreign Trade (MECE) and of Higher Education and Research (MESR). The Ministries also participate in establishing RDI policy, along with the Ministry of Health, which is involved in health-related research policy.

The MESR also has a dual role as a funding provider to the University and other public research organisations, according to the terms of their performance contracts. Additional funding providers (orange boxes) are the National Research Fund (NRF) which administers programmes such as CORE for the public sector, while the MECE’s Directorate of Research and Innovation funds private sector research according to the provisions of the law of 5 June 2009.

The University and the research organisations comprise the research performers for the public sector (grey boxes), while research support (teal boxes) is provided by the MECE’s Office of Intellectual Property and Luxinnovation, whose functions include overseeing the Cluster programme and the Ecostart business incubators. Its partners include the Chamber of Commerce and the Chamber of Trades as well as the MECE and the MESR.
