Strategic priorities

A cross-disciplinary approach to innovation

LIST’s strategic priorities have been identified in order to strengthen the Luxembourgish Government’s strategy of economic diversification and smart growth, as described in the “National plan for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth”.

In order to do this, the structure of the institute is based on a matrix pattern with three technology departments (materials science and technologies, information technologies, and environmental technologies). They develop the expertise, know-how, and technological building blocks to support three sectorial and cross-disciplinary strategic priorities:

  • Digital Twin
  • Smart Space
  • Industry 4.0

These strategic priorities enable LIST to reduce its focus areas by clustering its technological innovations into very few strategic sectors. In this way, LIST can offer comprehensive, global and long term collaborations to its customers, whether public or private. Together, the strategic priorities are an integral part of the overarching national effort to transform Luxembourg into a “Smart Nation".
