Four research projects conducted by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) have been selected to contribute to Luxembourg's defence effort.
The Luxembourg government set up an interministerial cooperation in 2022 between the Defence Directorate, the Ministry of the Economy and the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, as well as the National Research Fund (FNR) and Luxinnovation. This intrastate collaboration enabled the Luxembourg Defence Ministry to launch, in June 2022, the first national call for R&D projects in the field of defence.
This first call for projects targeted the space and materials sectors and was open to both companies and research centres in Luxembourg. Following the launch of the call, national players proposed 60 projects, including 16 in the materials sector and 44 in the space sector. In the end, 13 projects were selected for funding, including five in the field of materials and eight in space.
The selected projects will be funded for a maximum of three years.
