Support research on COVID-19 in Luxembourg

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, scientists from the University of Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Institute of Health, the Laboratoire National de Santé, LIST and LISER as well as laboratories and hospitals have joined forces under the umbrella of RESEARCH LUXEMBOURG to help in the fight against the novel coronavirus sars-cov-2.

Many Luxembourg-based scientists have initiated research projects focusing on the topic of COVID-19, notably on studies to gain a better understanding on the prevalence of the disease in Luxembourg, and to identify risk factors and biomarkers associated with severe symptoms and long-terms consequences of the disease. And by helping to model the evolution of the pandemic in Luxembourg, scientists are helping to shape informed decisions about confinement and exit strategies.

Many of these projects are evaluated and funded by the Fonds National de la Recherche (FNR). In addition, the André Losch Foundation has contributed 1.4M € to the research projects. Despite this generous funding, some of these projects did not receive the entire amount necessary to carry out the full project. Therefore, we are currently looking for donations to help us cover the costs of some of the most promising COVID-19 projects currently undertaken in Luxembourg.

Donations towards COVID-19 research projects can be made to the following account:
