The Luxembourg space sector comprises than 30 active companies, including specialised research institutions. The sector already has more 700 skilled employees, including highly qualified specialists in various space industry fields.
Luxembourg’s openness to blue-sky thinking and its determination to generate fresh ideas have contributed to make the space sector a new national priority. The grand duchy has created a business-friendly environment for the sector based on a legal and regulatory stability designed for both new and mature space operators.
In particular, the national law on the prospection and use of space resources of July 20, 2017 placed the country among the world's most innovative nations in terms of openness to the development of space-based industries, and has sparked further expansion in so-called 'new space' fields.
