Next Generation Education since 1848:
175 Years of Fresenius

You may not know it, but LUNEX is part of an important German educational group. 175 years ago, Carl Remigius Fresenius, founded a chemical laboratory that was also dedicated to education.

This laboratory was the starting point for the group, which today includes a wide variety of education providers such as Ludwig Fresenius Schulen, Hochschule Fresenius University of Applied Sciences, Carl Remigius Medical School, Mentor Fortbildungen and LUNEX.

They are all part of an educational tradition that is characterised by innovation, a spirit of research, high practical relevance, and a strong sense of social responsibility.

The education group would like to celebrate 175 years of Fresenius together with events and activities in our schools.

Commemorating the legacy of Ludwig Fresenius alongside Cognos International

On the 3rd of July, we celebrated in Differdange 175 years of educational excellence of the Carl Remigius Fresenius Education Group that created LUNEX. We express our heartfelt gratitude to all the passionate educators, industry leaders, students and aspiring minds who made this event a grand success.

Starting with a performance of the LUNEX Cheerleaders, the event carried on with a speech of lecturer Valeria Maglia and a discussion between Cognos International CEO Matthias Afting and former football player and DFB director Oliver Bierhoff. Two of our student athletes, Bob Haller of our Bachelor in International Sport Management, and Pit Brandenburger of our Bachelor in Physiotherapy, has also shared their experience at the university and answered the questions of radio host and moderator Lisa Burke.
