The European Investment Bank and the University of Luxembourg have signed on 18 October an agreement memorandum, renewing their cooperation agreement covering academic research projects, courses and seminars, teaching and documentation resource sharing.

Examples of cooperation between the EIB and the University made possible by the previous agreement include: the joint conference October Days for Sustainable Development, the training programme Certificate in law and regulation of inclusive finance, joint opportunities for internships and Master’s theses, the publication of articles co-authored by EIB and University staff, support for the Summer School of the Regional Science Association, and the EIBURS grant.

This partnership also enabled the University’s European Studies Library to open up access to selected works from the EIB’s historical collections.

The University of Luxembourg was 17th in the world on the Times Higher Education Young Universities’ Ranking 2019 and first in the world for its international approach.
