The objective of the project FEDER « Luxembourg Science Center » is the co-financing together with the Ministère de l’Education Nationale of 7 exceptional, large, scientific and technological devices to enrich and extend the offer of the Luxembourg Science Center: 2 observation stations (an ecosphere and a cloud chamber), 2 examination instruments (an electron microscope and a high-speed camera) and 3 production machines (a 3D filament printer, a 3D metal printer and a water jet cutter).

All equipment and programmes relating to its use cover topics related to the “Smart Specialisation Strategy” and, like the rest of the LSC offer, are in line with priority axis 1 of the operational programme FEDER 2014-2020:

  • Promoting careers for young people in the MINT disciplines (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to foster employment growth in tomorrow’s economy;
  • disseminating science and technology to the general public for general purposes;
  • development of synergies between Luxembourg companies and economic operators, R&D centers and the higher education sector by making this valuable equipment available for specific RDI projects.
