Luxembourg: New University of Luxembourg Campus

Some days ago, I received this nice cover from Luxemburg. Luxemburg, officially the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, is a landlocked country in western Europe. It is bordered by Belgium to the west and north, Germany to the east, and France to the south. Its capital Luxembourg City is together with Brussels and Strasbourg one of the three official capitals of the European Union and seat of the European Court of Justice, highest juridical instance in the EU. Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in Europe, and ranked 179th in size of all the 194 independent countries of the world.

On the cover you can see on the right a new issued stamp. Unfortunately, I don't get it scanned properly, because its reflecting, but it shows the New University of Luxembourg Campus in Belval. The University of Luxembourg was founded in 2003. Since 2015 the new headquarter of the University is in Belval. Belval was formerly the beating heart of Luxembourg’s steel industry and now takes on a new role as a place to live and to innovate. Now,  25,000 people, including 7,000 students and 3,000 scientists, will eventually live, work, and study in this area which is the size of 120 football pitches.
