About Luxembourg

Grand Duchy of Luxembourg

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is located at the very heart of Europe. It is one of the smallest countries in Europe with around 550,000 inhabitants, more than 40% of which are immigrants from 160 countries. Luxembourg is known to be the European Business Hub, a unique gateway to access European markets, do business and to live in an attractive and secure place.

Luxembourg is one of the founding states of the European Union and is well described with the following few words: small, open, multicultural, diversified, stable, and connected.

Visitors are always enthusiastic by the picturesque Old Town and the attractive cultural agenda: theatre and concerts, museums and exhibitions, sightseeing, architecture, sports, shopping, wines, beers and excellent food. For further information, please visit www.lcto.lu.

The City of Science

The Cité des Sciences, de la Recherche et de l’Innovation is currently under construction on a brownfield site in Belval, next to Esch-sur-Alzette, the second largest city of the country and the capital of Luxembourg’s steel industry. It is part of a 120 ha urban development project, without parallel in Luxembourg and Europe, which was started in 1998 after the closure of the last blast furnaces of the ARBED group. It foresees the creation of a new urban neighbourhood, located 20 kilometers south of the City of Luxembourg and on the border with France, combining in one place housing, working, learning, living and leisure. 

The City of Science, Research and Innovation is the flagship project of Belval’s conversion and will group activities related to higher education, research and innovation in one place. Actors from the entire national innovation ecosystem will be located here, enabling the generation of new synergies and opportunities for research and innovation as well as collaboration with private companies. The faculties of the young University of Luxembourg and its Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB), the two research centres Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) and Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER), complemented by the incubator for start-ups and spinoffs, Technoport®.
