FOCUS on Research & Innovation in Luxembourg - N°2/2009 - A Thriving Space Industry
The space industry is a key high-tech sector for Luxembourg. The Grand Duchy’s love affair with space sparked up with SES ASTRA in the mid 1980s, and it has resulted in a high concentration of dynamic space-related companies. The Grand Duchy strives to attract both SMEs and large corporations active in this field by providing excellent support and infrastructure. Several dedicated structures have been set up to further this goal by helping Luxembourg-based companies and laboratories gain access to the space sector.
