We present the last developments of the LAUE project, whose main goal is to build a Laue lens for soft gamma-ray astronomy (80-600 keV) and to set an advanced technology for assembling high focal length focusing optics. With such a lens we expect to increase the sensitivity of the current non-focusing instruments by 2 orders of magnitude in the energy range above mentioned.
