ESSKA Foundation - CLOSED

under the aegis of Fondation de Luxembourg

The ESSKA Foundation, now closed, was established with the aim of raising the level of care, achieving excellence in the field of orthopedics in Europe and to prevent sport lesions. 


The ESSKA Foundation was established by The European Society for Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA) with the aim of raising the level of care and achieving excellence in the field of orthopedics in Europe, especially in sports medicine and degenerative joint disease. The intention was to improve musculoskeletal function and quality of life of patients.


To achieve its mission, the Foundation supported education and research projects in the field of orthopedics and sports medicine. The ESSKA Foundation management committee evaluated the projects and decided on the allocation of the financial resources.

The committee consisted of:


  • ESSKA President
  • ESSKA 1st Vice President
  • ESSKA Past President
  • Director General of Fondation de Luxembourg
  • Independent expert: Jeannot Kreck√©, former Luxembourg Minister of Economy and Sport


With more than 2,500 members – most of them orthopaedic surgeons and scientists – from 85 countries, ESSKA is one of the global leaders in the field of sports traumatology and bone and joint surgery. Its goal is to support and promote the research results of its members and to publish them through its scientific journals, books and international congresses. ESSKA offers access to continuous medical education through the organisation and patronage of numerous congresses, courses, exchange programmes and research meetings. Through its network of international key opinion leaders, ESSKA offers a rapid dissemination of the newest scientific and technological findings in Europe and beyond.
