The last two years were marked by the move of the university and research centres to the vibrant site of Belval, where industrial heritage and innovation provide the backdrop for a new way to live, work and study in Luxembourg.
The new Luxembourg RDI hub is unique in terms of urban life, with its exceptional architecture, and assembles all the elements to become one the most prestigious innovation ecosystems in Europe. A variety of research and innovation actors can be found on site: the University of Luxembourg, research institutions, a business incubator, the National Research Fund and the National Agency for Innovation and Research.
Belval underlines the commitment of the Luxembourg government to keeping investments in research and innovation high over the coming years. State-of-the-art research and training facilities appraised highly by international evaluators are important assets of the young and energetic research environment you will find in Luxembourg.
Although research infrastructures are certainly an important factor in fostering innovation, the real driving force behind are the researchers. Not only post-doctoral but also PhD candidates benefit from stable working conditions with employment contracts providing highly competitive salaries and full social security and pension coverage.
The aim of this guide is to make your mobility experience as easy as possible, by presenting an overview of the legal framework in matters such as employment, entry conditions, taxation, social security, health care, as well as to provide information on accommodation and daily life issues.
