On 60 hectares of industrial land with a century and a half of history in Esch-Schifflange, the possibility of creating a neighbourhood where future generations can live in a new and pleasant environment is under review. “It is important from the outset to integrate in the planning of this project all innovative aspects, so that forward looking developments and trends can be integrated immediately,” explains Yves Biwer, administrative director of the Agora development company.

During the preparatory phase, Agora called upon Luxinnovation in order to leverage its extensive network and mobilise companies in the field as well as research centres.

“With Agora, we started from scratch,” says Charles-Albert Florentin, Luxembourg EcoInnovation Cluster manager at Luxinnovation. “So, to begin, we had to define what could be the vision of this future neighbourhood. We therefore proposed workshops to identify innovative concepts, in collaboration with LIST, the University of Luxembourg and some 80 participating companies. The ambition is to bring supply and demand together. We have identified several interesting projects in the future for the country and we want to put concepts, products and services in place, whether they come from Luxembourg companies or from foreign companies wishing to settle in Luxembourg in this respect.”
