[en] This chapter deals with the context of knowledge regions and the related regional economic and urban planning implications, particularly in the case of the University of Luxembourg, which is being relocated to the entirely new setting of Belval in the old industrialised South of the country in Esch-sur-Alzette, and Sanem, respectively. In order to discuss this case, the specificities of Luxembourg (state, policy, role of science, planning, urban issues, cross-border problems) have to be taken into account. Finally, we shed some light on a series of sustainable development issues.
