The Composite Industry Luxembourg (CIL) was created in February 2018, in the context of the Luxembourg National Composite Initiative.

The National Composite Initiative acts as a catalyst, consolidating the core competencies of Luxembourg’s composite industry. The initiative identifies and executes joint projects and provides networking and incubating opportunities as well as consulting and training. The targeted fields of applications are new composite materials combining nanotechnology, bio-based resources, chemistry, engineering, material science and processing, as well as manufacturing.

The ecosystem is composed of three inter-dependent pillars:

  • The National Composite Centre – Luxembourg (NCC-L), hosted by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST)
  • The Composite Industry Luxembourg ASBL (CIL), composed of national and international industrial companies
  • The Industry Advisory Group (IAG)
