Luxembourg Cluster Initiative Stimulating business success and innovation to the benefit of the cluster members is one of the prime objectives of the Luxembourg Cluster Initiative. We do this by facilitating links, networks and cooperation between national players and by providing key information on opportunities, technologies and trends, all which supports and strengthens their position. We work with all components of the economic ecosystem – companies, research, private financing and public funding as well as government policies, rules and framework conditions – to create a favourable environment for cluster members. We also manage large national flagship projects with the aim to set up robust platforms for collaboration in key technology fields. Our cluster managers play the role of single point of contact towards their member and help them take advantage of all Luxinnovation services – start-up support, technology transfer, and search for funding and so on – in a coordinated and structured manner. Automotive components BioHealth EcoInnovation ICT Materials and production technologies Space A new cluster emerged in 2016: the Wood Cluster, focusing on the wood production and processing industry. The cluster’s aim is to increase the use of this excellent and sustainable material at the local and regional level. Fuelled by the desire for stronger collaboration expressed by all players concerned, this exchange platform is managed by Luxinnovation and will be operational from March 2017. The digital technologies industry was highlighted in the 2016 edition of our FOCUS – Research and Innovation in Luxembourg magazine. We showcased Luxembourg as an attractive location for creative entrepreneurs and innovative companies in the field of digital technologies. Designed to promote Luxembourg research and innovation capabilities at the international level, FOCUS is widely distributed to companies, investors and research organisations across the world. In 2016, we also hosted international business delegations and representatives from e.g. China, Japan, Lithuania, Russia and the United States to discuss collaboration opportunities.
