Tech Advantage

The importance and the know-how of recovering waste heat to produce energy

Energy prices have risen, so it's now more advantageous to go for this type a solution. We've seen a real difference in terms of interest since the start of the project - before the periods of tension on the markets when suddenly the scarcity of certain energy sources meant that the price of energy rose. So, we realised that in the end we needed to think seriously about these topics... heat recovery to produce energy made sense, especially when energy prices are tight.

How the Goodyear and LIST partnership is impacting the tire industry

We were never able to really recycle tires at the end of their life into raw materials that we could integrate in the tire and keep the same performance. So, it was always possible to recycle into tire products, but we lost performances that are important for our customers. And so, the focus will be clearly on creating materials that we can recycle into tire products and at the same time keep the performance of the tire.

Generative AI: Veni, vidi, vici?

LIST AI sandbox is a tool where you can test the mainstream large language models (like ChatGPT) against a number of benchmarks that are publicly available, that have been created by the open-source community. And they would assign a score to the model based on the answers that they give to a standard set of questions and based on the bias they can detect in these answers to see if a model is very biased or if it’s not biased at all.

Diversity & Inclusion

We find unity in our collective diversity. Each scientist, engineer, innovator and staff member brings a unique set of talents, insights, and backgrounds to the table. At LIST, diversity is part of who we are. By honoring and amplifying each person's distinct voice, we unlock new avenues of thought, break down barriers, and pave the way for science and innovation to flourish.

In 2023, we participated in the Positive Actions programme of the Ministry of Equality between Women and Men (MEGA).

For the third consecutive year, LIST was an official sponsor of Pride Week, celebrating LGBTIQ+ in Luxembourg.

Finally, we continued our joint work with other Luxembourg research institutes, the FNR and the University of Luxembourg to improve the professional situation of female researchers in Luxembourg.
