Scientific LargeScale Infrastructure for Computing/Communication Experimental Studies


The national strategy, namely Digital Luxembourg, has been established to push further Luxembourg’s digital capacities. For this purpose, support is provided to strategic actors and kick-starting strategic projects that drive cutting-edge technological developments in Luxembourg. It is in this regard that Digital Luxembourg’s overall goal remains to provide Luxembourg with an excellent environment for the development of research. Luxembourg’s research community, the Luxembourg Government, and NVIDIA have fostered the creation of a joint AI laboratory in Luxembourg. The national AI collaboration, the first with NVIDIA in Europe, is a milestone towards working together to solve society’s most important challenges using artificial intelligence and high-performance computing. Luxembourg is the first European country to create an artificial intelligence (AI) partnership with NVIDIA. This collaboration follows a memorandum of understanding signed on the 5th of July 2018 between NVIDIA and the Luxembourg Government. Enabled by the government’s “Digital Luxembourg” initiative, the joint AI laboratory will encourage research in diverse fields. In this context, Luxembourg will strengthen the European collaboration by actively participating to the SLICES infrastructure with a dedicated site managed by the University of Luxembourg and supported by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) and the RESTENA foundation. This collaboration that already exists between these institutes will promotelarge-scale interdisciplinary research and education at European level.
