The University of Luxembourg is the only public university of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Founded in 2003, the university has already built a reputation as being among the best young universities in the world. As a motor of the national research and innovation system, the University gives strong support to entrepreneurial activities and is closely connected to Luxembourg’s industry and the country’s multicultural community, with an aim to support the creation of a knowledge-based society. The University has three faculties and three interdisciplinary research centres, including the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB). The LCSB is accelerating biomedical research by closing the link between systems biology and medical research.
