How much do you know about the research sector in Luxembourg? Scientists are often very different from what people might expect. Watch the video to find out more.

There are a lot of stereotypes about research and scientists, the most common one being: the typical mad scientist with the lab coat or biologist using a microscope. But did you know that this is not an accurate image of science and scientists? From robots for children with autism to lunar rovers, drones, 3D printers or even giant plasma balls, the diversity of the research sector in Luxembourg is great. 

Who participated in the video?

This video features research done in Luxembourg, starring scientists and science communicators from Luxembourg:

The video was created ahead of the 2021 edition of the FNR’s initiative “Chercheurs à l’école“, where researchers visit secondary school across Luxembourg to tell students about life as a researcher. Researchers were able to use the video in their presentations to the students to clear up stereotypes and give them a glimpse of the diverse areas where researchers play an important role.
