Focus Areas

We have identified a select number of focus areas of international importance, which are also closely linked with the realities of Luxembourg's society and economy. This unique mix of international excellence and regional relevance is attracting students and scientists from all over the globe, generating external funding and delivering research outputs for society and businesses.

The 3rd four-year plan of the University of Luxembourg (2014-2017, PDF) and its annexes (PDF) were approved first by the Board of Governors and then by the University Council in autumn 2013. The Contrat d’Établissement Pluriannuel entre l’État et l’Université du Luxembourg, 2014-2017 (PDF) is also available.
