European Migration Network -  Contact Point Luxembourg

Annual National Conference

According to the European Commission, to remain a globally competitive player, the EU needs to find better ways to attract innovative migrant entrepreneurs and support migrant entrepreneurs already present in the EU. In this context, our annual conference tries to offer a broad overview of several start-up schemes from across and beyond the EU which provide various incentives for start-up entrepreneurs from third countries.

The first panel will provide an insight into the strategies EU Member States and Israel, as a “start-up nation”, use to enhance the attractiveness of their national economic system, outlining possible challenges and good practices for the various Member States as well as Israel that navigate between start-up founders and innovative entrepreneurs attraction and immigration regulations.  

The second panel will focus more on the national context by analysing the economic promotion strategy of Luxembourg in order to attract investors/entrepreneurs and the structure and measures in place to facilitate business creation for foreign entrepreneurs.

Finally, the last panel of the conference will discuss the role(s) that economic policies and incubators can play in the creation of an attractive framework for start-up founders and innovative entrepreneurs in Luxembourg.

Panelists in the conference will be :

  • Werner Hoyer, President of the European Investment Bank
  • Anne-Cécile Jarasse, Officer of the French National Contact Point (European Migration Network), France
  • Dr. Ralf Sänger, Head of Competence Centre on Migrant Entrepreneurship, Germany
