Besides that, a highlight is the simplicity of setting up research, businesses or investments in Luxembourg exemplified by the 5 steps functions.

Interactive sections, downloadable material, and thorough descriptions add weight to the website with plans on the way for continuous improvements. The Minister of the Economy, Etienne Schneider is pleased about the excellent collaboration between all sectors involved in the development and promotion of the life sciences sector under the common brand "Luxembourg for Business - Proud to Promote Science and Technology".
