Research in numbers

The University of Luxembourg was founded in 2003, right at the heart of the European Union (EU). The University is multilingual, international and strongly focused on research. We aim to achieve research excellence through a culture of reflection, innovation and diversity of approaches (i.e. different perspectives, methodologies, cultures). In line with this focus, research conducted at the University has been steadily growing, as the following numbers reflect.

Horizon 2020 (H2020) is the biggest Research and Innovation programme of the EU ever with nearly 80 billion euros of funding available over seven years (2014 to 2020). It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.

For a research-centred and innovative university such as the University of Luxembourg it is an important goal to be part of the H2020 community and to continue to successfully apply for these funding opportunities.
