Working and living in Luxembourg

Luxembourg, like Brussels and Strasbourg, is one of the headquarters of the EU institutions.

Few people know that the Grand Duchy also housed the first historic seat of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC). Since then, most of the EU institutions and bodies, in terms of geographic concentration, are located in Luxembourg, employing a quarter of all European civil servants. In fact, the European Commission, the General Secretariat of the European Parliament, the Court of Justice of the EU, the European Court of Auditors, the European Investment Bank, the European Investment Fund, the European Public Prosecutor's Office and also the European Financial Stability Fund, the European Stability Mechanism are all based in Luxembourg. Certain agencies such as the Executive Agency for Consumers, Health, Agriculture and Food, and the Translation Centre for the bodies of the European Union, are also situated in Luxembourg.

The country has recorded a significant population increase over the last years, mainly due to the quality of life it offers and its sustained economic development, offering many professional opportunities. In the context of the agreement made in 2015 between Commissioner Georgieva and the Asselborn government, three main areas (digital, financial and legal) have been identified to strengthen the presence of the Commission in Luxembourg.
