20 years dedicated to students, research and society

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the University of Luxembourg, and we have many reasons to celebrate. What began as an academic startup, is now an international research university with a distinctly multilingual and interdisciplinary character. The perfect moment to thank students, graduates, staff and all our partners, friends and supporters.

Message from the rector

20 years – déjà! With courage, ideas and a vision, Luxembourg founded its own public university in 2003. Since then, our institution has emerged as one of the most dynamic research universities in Europe. We have successfully nurtured and graduated more than 14,000 young minds. We attract and generate world-class talent, and we serve the country as a think tank and strategic partner. We owe this success to our professors, staff, students and graduates, our partners and friends, and to the Grand-Duchy. Our thanks go to all of you who have always believed in the University of Luxembourg. We have the ambition, the energy, the talent – and we have your support to shape the future together. Here’s to the next 20 years!

Jens Kreisel, Rector
