Digital Twin

Towards the development of sustainable solutions & services

In the near future, two thirds of the world’s population will be living in cities. Luxembourg will not be free of the resulting problems in terms of environmental impact or population. With the aim of thinking ahead and finding innovative and sustainable solutions, Luxembourg has made Smart Cities one of its priority areas by favouring funding of a certain number of national initiatives.

Luxembourg has been specifically investing in digital technologies in a significant way for more than a decade, particularly in the storage and exploitation of data related to the management of cities and which are vital elements in the development of solutions in terms of Smart Cities. To this end, Luxembourg has just launched, in partnership with France, Italy, and Spain, the high-performance computing project for Europe. Coupled with the strong skills developed in Luxembourg in certain fields such as mobility, construction, energy, and water management, these digital infrastructures will enable the country to develop sustainable solutions and dedicated services for the management of major cities. They also contribute to the promotion of Luxembourg’s excellence at the forefront of European innovation.

Smart cities involve the following lines of business:


LIST is developing technologies to reduce road-traffic congestion and to offer quicker, greener, and less expensive mobility options.

These technologies are aimed at public authorities, both national and local, and at transport communities, logistics operators, transportation service providers, and commercial operators. 


LIST’s goal is to enable key players in the construction industry to make significant savings throughout the entire life cycle of a building project thanks to new technologies or new materials.

LIST’s solutions affect all the key players in the construction industry, including project managers, contractors and building firms. 


LIST offers companies that produce or consume energy, as well as energy distributors, solutions that enable them to better predict and manage peak consumption, to reduce the need for expensive infrastructure expansion, and to improve service quality and customer satisfaction. 


LIST is developing innovative solutions for the integrated management of water resources, both quantitatively and qualitatively. These solutions are mainly aimed at communities, whether large or small, and water unions.
