"The major goal for this meeting is to bring together the very best scientists from Europe and around the world working on basic and translational science in the field of heart failure ... in order to encourage intense and robust scientific exchanges and discussion relating to the latest data and advances" stated Prof Kenneth Dickstein, President of the Heart Failure Association of the European Society of Cardiology in his welcome address. "The active involvement of junior investigators is also encouraged" explained Prof Dickstein.
The Winter Meeting is sponsored exclusively by the Heart Failure Association and is held in collaboration with the ESC Working Groups on Myocardial Function, Cellular Biology of the Heart, Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology, Cardiovascular Pharmacology and Drug Therapy, EUGeneHeart and the Council for Basic Cardiovascular Science.
The European Society of Cardiology (ESC):
The ESC represents nearly 53,000 cardiology professionals across Europe and the Mediterranean. Its mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe.
The ESC achieves this through a variety of scientific and educational activities including the coordination of: clinical practice guidelines, education courses and initiatives, pan-European surveys on specific disease areas and the ESC Annual Congress, the largest medical meeting in Europe. The ESC also works closely with the European Commission and WHO to improve health policy in the EU.
The ESC comprises 3 Councils, 5 Associations, 19 Working Groups, 50 National Cardiac Societies and an ESC Fellowship Community (Fellow, FESC; Nurse Fellow, NFESC). For more information on ESC Initiatives, Congresses and Constituent Bodies see www.escardio.org.
