The PMC is keen to build new collaborations between clinicians and researchers from Luxembourg and to foster new synergies. To aid in this process, the three PMC-related institutions CRP-Santé, LCSB and IBBL have signed an agreement to develop the PMC FUND to ‘pump prime’ new initiatives.

The expectation is that the funding will be used to initiate new collaborative research projects on biomedical research between clinicians and researchers who have not previously worked together and who are based in different research institutions. Priority will be given to projects that are novel and innovative, that are establishing new collaborations within Luxembourg and where preliminary data is needed prior to submitting an application to an external funding agency.

The main expected return on investment of such funding relies on:

  • Ÿ Solving unmet clinical needs with innovative approach
  • Ÿ Fostering research interactions between the 3 biomedical research institutes of Luxembourg.
  • Ÿ Enabling researchers/clinicians to develop this project into an externally funding project if successful
