Serving the national and European economy and society, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organisation (RTO) located in the very heart of Luxembourg's new Research and Innovation Campus at the former industrial site of Esch-Belval. From here, any major European city can be reached in less than 2,5 hours. Given the quality of its infrastructure, its esthetic appeal and its cultural heritage, the Campus brings together strong potential for innovation uniting university, research centres, joint laboratories, start-ups and incubators.
Luxembourg is an ideal laboratory for leveraging Information and Communication Technology (ICT), ecoinnovation and material science in order to tackle tomorrow's economic and societal challenges. It fosters diversity, particularly in terms of ideas, languages and nationalities, while it invests in technology-driven collective intelligence. Moreover, the country's three-faceted industrial, financial and space-oriented culture has enabled it to devise a progressive legal framework in many domains, suitable even for developing the future use of mining resources in space.
