Building on the significant investments in biomedical public research over the last 10 years, opportunities are now arising to convert our scientific leadership into technological innovations laying the foundations for a promising business sector for the Luxembourg economy.

Luxembourg’s central location in Europe has served many companies as the perfect platform to localize their business into Europe. Attracting global innovators in the health technology field is an ambition that is actively encouraged. We look to create an added value to the investors that come to Luxembourg, so links to public research, hospitals and local businesses are key. Recent investments have even seen the opening of dedicated facilities for soft-landing inbound healthtech businesses.

This relatively young sector has experienced strong development over the past few years, and is currently specialising in the following fields:

  • Digital Health
  • Diagnostics
  • Health Data Analytics
  • Health Wearables

The government’s firm commitment to establishing Luxembourg as an attractive destination for health sciences research and innovation is backed by substantial public investment and a supportive business environment.
