Modern buildings are forming a new world around the Raemerich roundabout, particularly in the area where HE:AL, the “Health and Lifescience Innovation Campus,” has been established. This is where the majority of Luxembourg’s biotechnology research is centred.
A dozen years ago, the groundwork for a “health sector of excellence” was laid here. According to Minister of the Economy Franz Fayot, this is an important element in the diversification of Luxembourg’s economy. Fayot describes the industry as “a sector that is important above all to guarantee better healthcare, a type of healthcare that will be strengthened by the use of data.”
The Minister points out that the digitalisation and the use of data to create personalised, preventive healthcare in order to avoid having to treat patients afterwards is a global trend, “a trend that we want to capitalise on.”
