FOCUS on Research & Innovation in Luxembourg - N°6/2012 - Making Materials Smarter

Materials whose structure and composition have been designed deliberately to give them new or radically different properties, materials engineered to mimic effects found in nature, materials developed to benefit mankind: these are no longer dreams but reality that is currently taking shape in Luxembourg. The Grand Duchy upholds a proud tradition in the manufacture and processing of innovative materials, established more than a century ago with the development of cutting-edge refining processes that underpinned the expansion of the nation’s steel industry. It is determined to pursue this tradition in order to meet the stringent technology requirements of the 21st century.
