As a major engine of the diversification and growth of Luxembourg’s economy through innovation, LIST supports the deployment of several solutions to a wide range of sectors, including IT, telecommunications, environment, energy, agriculture, and advanced manufacturing at national and European level. ITIS (IT for Innovative Services) is one of the three departments of LIST and focuses on smart systems. ITIS competencies portfolio spans from decisional knowledge dynamics (multimodal analytics, embedded assessment, Human- Machine Interaction, knowledge-based context-aware adaptive systems) and trusted service systems (trusted service supply chains, process quality, enterprise engineering) to service engineering (collaborative service innovation, service deployment, value and design).
LIST’s European dimension is already considerable, as nearly 50% of its business is currently conducted at the European level. LIST is also an active member of several European networks, including the European association of RTOs (EARTO), whose annual conference it hosted in 2015. On an international level, LIST is active in several programmes led by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. These activities will be strengthened in the next few years with the goal of becoming a Luxembourg ambassador for excellence and enabling the emergence of new business opportunities, especially for Luxembourg businesses.
