University of Luxembourg

The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research university in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The multicultural country is home to the Financial Centre, to European Union Institutions and international enterprises.



A major goal of public research in Luxembourg is to position the country as a knowledge-based society.

The national strategy is to foster innovation that will drive sustainable socio-economic development and further diversify the economy by developing new and strengthening existing high added-value economic and social activities. The University of Luxembourg supports this strategy through its commitment to:

  1. be an international leader in selected areas of research;
  2. provide high quality interdisciplinary teaching and learning programmes; and
  3. positively contribute to shaping Luxembourg’s society and strengthening its economy.


2018-2021 roadmap

This four-year phase will be characterised by a refinement of our research foci and a consolidation of resources.


Supporting Existing Pillars of Excellence

As noted by the third external evaluation, these research areas are defined as excellent because of the quantity and quality of research output & their ability to acquire highly competitive external research funding.

We put Education in this category because the Luxembourg education system is unique - with the country’s multilingualism and its associated societal heterogeneities, Luxembourg’s education system is a “living laboratory” of international relevance.

We also put our newest Interdisciplinary Centre, Contemporary History and Digital Learning, into this category.
