Two seperate agreements were thus signed on Thursday morning in presence of the Minister for Higher Education and Research Claude Meisch.

The collaboration aims at strengthening the relationship between the University of Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology, and the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH). The goal is to better divide research projects between the scientific departments on the one hand, and to share information and equipment on the other. Prof Dr Jens Kreisel from the university explained that the agreement will further allow to make greater joint investments in the future.

Ultimately, the institutions seek to create a more nurturing environment for young researchers and students. LIST and LIH members will be able to teach courses at the university and thus contribute to the inclusive mindset. In 2017, only one researcher was teaching at Uni.lu, a number which has grown to 7 in 2020.

Both agreements represent the collaborative achievements of the past, such as the work done within the Covid Task Force.
