- Why Luxembourg
- Startup community
The Luxembourg economy has been growing steadily over the years, continuously outperforming the EU average. Today, as one of only eleven countries worldwide with an AAA rating, Luxembourg has solid macroeconomic fundamentals and offers strong long-term growth possibilities.
Nestled in the heart of Europe between Belgium, France and Germany, Luxembourg combines economic, social and political stability. It has relatively low unemployment, a multicultural workforce and a government committed to diversifying the economy.
Luxembourg has always valued international cooperation. Entrepreneurs who have chosen the Grand Duchy to grow their startups know this better than anyone else.
Luxembourg is also a land of research. The University of Luxembourg was created in 2003. It is ranked 12th worldwide in the Young University ranking and counts over 6.000 students from more than 100 different countries. The University’s renowned research centres include the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) and the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB). The country also counts a number of research institutes such as the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) and the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH). The public research sector is specialised in domains such as cybersecurity, data-driven modelling and simulation, health technologies, bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, environmental sustainability and space.
