Luxembourg Centre for Logistics and Supply Chain Management
The Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the University of Luxembourg, through a long-term partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Center for Transportation & Logistics (MIT CTL), at the end of 2015 founded the Luxembourg Centre for Logistics (LCL). The LCL will help establish Luxembourg as the European standard for training, research and innovation in the logistics sector. Co-located within the University of Luxembourg, the LCL will offer both Masters and Doctoral degrees. Additionally, the centre will conduct applied research, provide executive education programs, and work with corporations within Europe and across the globe, with the goal to become a world leader in education and research in Supply Chain Management, freight transportation, global trade, and logistics.
The LCL will be integrated into the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance at the University of Luxembourg, closely tied to its Centre for Research in Economics and Management.
The LCL is one of the newest members of MIT’s Global Supply Chain and Logistics Excellence (SCALE) Network of research centers in the area of transportation, logistics and supply chain management. This network includes MIT CTL (Cambridge, MA USA), the Zaragoza Logistics Center or ZLC (Zaragoza, Spain), the Center for Latin-America Logistics Innovation or CLI (Bogota, Colombia), the Malaysia Institute for Supply Chain Innovation or MISI (Shah Alam, Malaysia), and the Ningbo Supply Chain Innovation Institute China or NSCIIC (Ningbo, China).
