SnT - Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust

The SnT conducts internationally competitive research in information and communication technology, ICT, with high relevance creating socio-economic impact. In addition to long-term, high-risk research, SnT engages in demand driven collaborative projects with industry and the public sector. Therefore the centre has set up a Partnership Programme with now 27 members targeting strategic areas addressing challenges confronting industry and the public sector in ICT. These resulting concepts present a genuine, long-lasting competitive advantage for companies in Luxembourg and beyond.

SnT has undergone a rapid development since its launch in 2009; recruiting top scientists, launching over 40 EU and ESA projects, creating a technology transfer office (TTO), protecting and licensing IP, launching two spin-offs, and creating a dynamic interdisciplinary research environment with some 260 people.
