About us

Fondation Coeur – Daniel Wagner was created by two Luxembourgish doctors in memory of Dr. Daniel Wagner, a highly respected Luxembourg cardiologist who passed away unexpectedly last year. The aim of the recently created foundation is to support scientific research in cardiovascular diseases. The foundation is also engaged in promoting and raising awareness among the general public on the specific risks posed by these diseases. Fondation Coeur – Daniel Wagner is giving priority to research carried out in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg.

LIROMS was established in 2017 as a non-profit organization to promote clinical and fundamental research in the fields of orthopedics, sports medicine and sports sciences and serves as a bridge-builder between research (Luxembourg Institute of Health), clinical practice (Centre Hospitalier de Luxembourg) and sports (COSL/LIHPS). The mission is to provide scientific, economic and social value to Luxembourg through research and development in sports medicine, sports science, sports surgery and sports rehabilitation, summarised as sport-related research, and to generate new knowledge of mechanisms, epidemiology, diagnostics and treatment of sports-related human injuries and diseases, health benefits of physical activity, as well as human performance across the lifespan and for all levels of sports practice.
