Politics meets research: LISER researchers participate in ‘pairing scheme’
The exchange between researchers and MPs widens scientific knowledge in Luxembourg’s government and helps researchers understand how MPs make decisions
The second edition of the FNR organised ‘Pairing Scheme’, has selected three LISER researchers to be paired with Members of Parliament (MPs). The exchange between researchers and MPs both widen scientific knowledge in Luxembourg’s government and help researchers understand how MPs make decisions.
Beginning in April with a general visit by MPs of the Belval Campus which were followed by visits of researchers and MP’s to their respective work environment over the summer months, the initiative has allowed LISER researchers to get a better overview over the political process in Luxembourg and for MPs to get more in-depth insights. Researchers hope to then generate further societal impact.
Find below the main topics discussed between the four LISER researchers and the MPs:
Paolo Balmas was paired with Lydia Mutsch (LSAP)
Topic(s): Development of the Luxembourg financial centre
Bruno Glumac (LISER) was paired with Dan Biancalana (LSAP)
Topic(s): Brownfield redevelopment best practices
Ludivine Martin was paired with Marc Baum (Déi Lénk)
Topic(s): Digital transformations and the future of work.
Nicolas Poussing was paired with Marc Angel (LSAP)
Topic(s): Sustainability and digitalisation
