SnT – Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust

Core business

Launched in 2009 by the University of Luxembourg, the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) conducts internationally competitive research in information and communication technology (ICT) creating socio-economic impact. In addition to long-term, high-risk research, SnT engages in demand driven collabor ative projects with industry and the public sector, addressing not only technical aspects, but also business, human and regulatory issues.

Products & services

SnT’s Partnership program currently sees it collaborate with 34 public and private organisations, addressing the major challenges facing industry and the public sector in ICT. The resulting concepts present a genuine, long-lasting competitive advantage for companies in Luxembourg and beyond. Similarly, its Technology Transfer Office (TTO) helps bridge the gap between research results and commercially-viable solutions, ensuring that SnT is at the heart of efforts to build a vibrant innovations ecosystem in Luxembourg. Over the last two years the TTO has been highly active in providing training and licensing intellectual property, and has managed a dozen proof of concept projects. Four of these have gone on to be launched as spin-off companies. This approach demonstrates that scientific excellence and socio-economic impact can thrive in tandem.
