THIS WEBSITE OF COMPETENCES IS ONE OF THE ACTIONS INTENDED TO ENCOURAGE INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION

Since its entry into space business more than 25 years ago, Luxembourg has constantly promoted the development of its key players in this highly specialised sector. This approach is consistent with the overall aim of sustainably diversifying the Luxembourg economy by building on existing capabilities and skills whilst incorporating the latest knowledge and supporting the integration of national players into international networks. The country’s efforts to put in place the measures necessary to support the continued strengthening of its space sector clearly demonstrate this long-lasting commitment.

This website of Luxembourg Space Capabilities is one of the measures aimed at encouraging international collaboration. In order to build up sustainable activities in the space sector, it is important that Luxembourg actors are not only known beyond the borders of the Grand Duchy but also that their capabilities are recognised by the international space community. This directory showcases the capabilities of our national actors and serves as an open invitation for potential international partners to identify and establish successful research and business relationships with these actors.
