National resources: Luxembourg


On this page you will find an overview of data management resources available for the Luxembourgish life science research community. In addition to information provided here, the reader is advised to read the Research Luxembourg website, which describes the Luxembourg research landscape and developments.


Luxembourg’s main research funding body is the Fonds National de la Recherché (FNR). The FNR promotes open-access to scientific publication through its open-access fund. To increase the re-usability of research outputs the FNR adopts a research data management policy and expects all funded projects to prepare and implement Data Management Plans (DMP) in line with Science Europe guidelines. DMP guiding questions are provided in the FNR grant management system.


Luxembourg’s National Commission for Data Protection (CNPD), through its Open Data Protection Laboratory (DaProLab), provides online guidance and information sessions on data protection for research.

Luxembourg’s National Research Ethics Committee (CNER) provides ethical oversight and individual assessment for research projects, particularly for the collection, use and secondary use of data/samples from human subjects.

Research infrastructures and resources

ELIXIR Lxembourg provides resources for life science data management, focusing on the areas of translational biomedicine data hosting, data protection, data FAIRification and reproducible research. ELIXIR Luxembourg provides the TransMed tool assembly to support research project with sensitive human data.

The Luxembourgish node of EATRIS provides services in translational medicine.

Luxembourg National Data Service (LNDS) is a government established organisation aiming to support and stimulate value creation from data in Luxembourg. LNDS provides a variety of data management and stewardship services to enable the secondary use of data. LNDS services are domain-agnostic and support the life sciences as well as other domains.
