LUNEX University Captivates Students and Guests from Across the World

Let’s Get Stared: The New LUNEX University Campus is Officially Inaugurated

SaarLorLux: Friday, November 18th, saw the official opening ceremony of LUNEX University, an internationally oriented university for sports, health and therapy located in Differdange (Luxembourg). Numerous invited guests attended the event, a testament to how well the young university is already integrated in the greater region’s transnational network. Against this backdrop, Their Royal Highnesses The Grand-Duke and Gran-Duchesse of Luxembourg attendance afforded them an opportunity to get an idea of LUNEX University’s origins and development. A student musical performance and a special sport act put on by the PK-LUX parkour team added an element of fun and relaxation to the official evening program.

Professor Dr. Axel Urhausen (LUNEX President) and Christian Alt (LUNEX CEO) welcomed the guests, among them numerous LUNEX students. This was followed by speeches given by Claude Meisch (Minister for Higher Education and Research), Lydia Mutsch (Minister for Health), Carlo Hastert (Counselor to the Minister of Sports) and Roberto Traversini, Mayor of Differdange. Moderator Thorunn Egilsdottir represented LUNEX’s media partner, Editpress. She helped make the event fun and entertaining, expertly and playfully bridging the gaps between acts.

The campus, including its seven new seminar rooms, was then inaugurated in an opening ceremony. Afterwards, an informal talk gave student representatives and lecturers from LUNEX University the opportunity to give Their Royal Highness The Grand-Duke first-hand accounts of daily university life. This was followed by tours of the LUNEX building, including a visit to the new research laboratory. Afterwards, it was time for the casual portion of the evening, including a buffet and musical entertainment. Our gratitude goes to everyone involved, and in particular the team from Centre Sportif de Differdange and the town of Differdange for their active support.
