The University of Luxembourg (Université de Luxembourg) was founded in 2003 as the first and only university of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. It is a multilingual, and international University, strongly focused on research. The University of Luxembourg, as one of the Luxembourg government’s research-driven institutions, aims to drive and foster outreach and awareness of its research results among all relevant stakeholders from government to industry players and standardisation bodies.
