Research and Industry collaboration
Internationally recognised for its research excellence in fields such as computer sciences and cybersecurity, Luxembourg also prides itself on top-level research in the fields of health, space and material sciences. Research organisations stand out for their openness to cooperate with industry, and stimulating public-private partnerships to fuel innovation is a national priority.
The University of Luxembourg – and, in particular, its Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) and the Luxembourg Institute for Socio-Economic Research (LISER) are the public research organisations that most frequently cooperate with companies.
