The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a mission-driven Research and Technology Organisation (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment and IT. By transferring technology to society as well as local companies, LIST contributes strongly to the building of tomorrow’s Luxembourg.
At the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), we develop innovative and competitive solutions in response to the key needs of Luxembourg and European companies. Our institute is constantly developing. It is a necessity due to technological and social change, industrial evolution, and an ever-changing list of challenges and opportunities.
We are member of the European Association of Research and Technology Organisations (EARTO). As such, we establish a link between research and society as a whole. Our approach is to ensure that transfers take place between these two spheres. LIST’s mission is to strengthen the economy through industrial innovation in Luxembourg, and to deliver projects benefitting society and quality of life in general.
We draw our strength from our employees. More than 75% are researchers and innovation experts. They are organised in three research departments which represent the backbone of our activity as a RTO.
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 – THE NEW INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH AND INNOVATION HUB
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.
