In order to strengthen the contribution of Luxembourg industry to the European Union’s technological and industrial defence base, a directory has been designed by Luxinnovation, the national innovation agency, and the Directorate for Defence.

It presents the current capabilities of Luxembourg industry and encourages potential international partners to explore international research and business development opportunities in the Grand Duchy.

The directory lists nearly 40 Luxembourg companies from different economic sectors and several departments of the University of Luxembourg and the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST).

It has been edited in the context of the major international Eurosatory exhibition, the world’s largest land and air defence and security event. For the first time ever, Luxembourg will have a national pavilion at the event, set up in collaboration with the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce. 15 companies will be present or represented. The Luxembourg delegation will also include 22 other companies that will visit the Parc des Expositions Paris Nord Villepinte from 13 to 17 June.

A webinar to inform companies interested in participating in the call for R&D projects in the field of defence

Furthermore, Luxinnovation is organising an information session, in the form of a webinar, for companies and researchers interested in participating in the call for research and development (R&D) projects launched in the field of defence, on Friday 10 June 2022 at 11:00 am.

The call for projects is based on an inter-ministerial cooperation between the Directorate of Defence, the Ministry of the Economy and the Ministry of Higher Education and Research as well as the National Research Fund (FNR) and Luxinnovation. It aims to support Luxembourg industry in integrating the European Union’s defence value chain and, above all, to develop dual-use technologies with both civilian and military applications.

Given the specific characteristics of the economic fabric and the specialities of public research in Luxembourg, the call for projects is limited to the space and materials sectors. It is aimed at both companies and research centres in Luxembourg in order to offer them an opportunity to take their first steps in this field.

Online registration for the webinar

During the webinar, various presentations on the objectives and modalities of the call will be followed by a questions and answers session.  Participants to the webinar are invited to register online.

To facilitate the emergence of projects and to support interested players in their efforts, Luxinnovation has set up an online platform where companies and public research organisations are invited to submit their project ideas until 29 July 2022.
