Supporting innovation

Support for research, innovation and technology transfer

Luxembourg is reinventing itself. From a former steelworks and financial centre, the country is successfully developing into a sought-after location for science, research and business innovation. Various organisations based in Belval are tasked with promoting entrepreneurial courage, vision and an openness to new ideas, and tapping into new development potential.

Fonds National de la Recherche (FNR)

The FNR is the central research organisation for the promotion of research in Luxembourg. The fund finances numerous projects in the natural sciences and humanities. The FNR also advises the Luxembourg government in matters of research policy and strategy. The fund is based at the "Maison des Sciences Humaines" on the blast furnace terrace.


The Luxembourg Agency for Innovation and Research offers a broad range of services for companies of all sizes, innovative start-ups and public research facilities. The agency has its offices at the "Maison des Sciences Humaines" on the blast furnace terrace.

„Technoport“ start-up centre

Technoport supports young, technology-orientated companies with the assessment, development and implementation of their business ideas. Technoport is in a newly designed building in what used to be the steelworkers' changing rooms on the blast furnace terrace.
