Fruitful Belgian state visit for LIST

Published on 18/10/2019

Over the three days of their state visit to the Grand Duchy, The King and Queen of the Belgians explored much of what Luxembourg has to offer. This twice included LIST.

Firstly, on the fringes of the visit, an academic delegation from Belgium visited Luxembourg’s research hub in Belval, including LIST’s technology showroom. Among LIST’s projects in the spotlight were the digital twin in the construction sector, flood management thanks to satellite data, RegTech, nanobiosensors for personalised medicine, and many more.

Three signatures

The second highlight for LIST during the state visit came on Thursday 17 October at the Chamber of Commerce in the context of collaborations between Belgian and Luxembourg companies. In the presence of H.R.H. the Grand Duke and H.M. the King of the Belgians, three agreements were signed with LIST:

  • The new partnership with Succy, a spin-off based on a LIST project named Kniwwelino  was officially signed. Kniwwelino is a creative programming and electronics learning tool, developed by LIST as part of an FNR Flagship project between 2017 and 2019. The aim is to support digital skills education and overcome the complexity of technologies for learners and teachers.
  • The signature of a "memorandum of understanding" commits LIST to the development of continuous training courses on the enhancement of data and information from the aerospace and earth observation fields, in partnership with the University of Liège, Jobs@skills, Idelux and the Luxembourg Space Agency.
  • LIST and the Centre Spatial de Liège (CSL) signed a cooperation agreement in the space sector.

By being involved during these three days of state visit of the King and Queen of the Belgians to Luxembourg, LIST has proven its worth to Belgian companies wishing to advance their technological activities.
