Several of the country's research departments have been mobilised and united to help tackle the current crisis.

Luxembourg has created a new task force dedicated to the research of the coronavirus. The approach sees 14 groups work closely together to coordinate their results.

Luxembourg's scientific community has significantly grown over the past years. Close to 3,000 researchers are currently working in the Grand-Duchy with more than half being employed by the government.

Scientific research is the key for understanding the developments of the pandemic. However, final decisions are still being taken on the political spectrum. Nonetheless, Luxembourg's small size encourages regular exchange with foreign experts, an essential process to steer the country out of the crisis.
