SES S.A. (Euronext Paris:SESG) (LuxX: SESG) has signed a partnership agreement with the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), the company said.
The new cooperation framework with LIST complements the existing SES partnership agreement with the Luxembourg University Interdisciplinary Center for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT), and widens the scope of SES´s international research activities together with other reputable universities.
Under the agreement, SES and LIST will cooperate through their international network of research partners with unique expertise in satellite communications (SATCOM), to transform basic research into innovative space applications. LIST will therefore become another close technology partner of SES in the development of pioneering SATCOM commercial products and services to inspire or “disrupt” the market with new satellite platforms, analysis tools and innovative ground infrastructure.
The new partnership agreement further enhances Luxembourg´s technology ecosystem by attracting start-ups to develop their businesses in Luxembourg, and will facilitate the transfer of new technologies stemming from national public and private research. Those activities will be done in close coordination with the existing national funding initiatives, such as the Digital Tech Fund, with SES being a key stakeholder.
SES is a satellite operator and the first to deliver a differentiated and scalable GEO-MEO offering worldwide, with more than 50 satellites in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and 12 in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO).
The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a mission-driven Research and Technology Organisation (RTO) that develops advanced technologies and delivers innovative products and services to industry and society.
