Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to dissemintate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care
Promoting excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our goal is to reduce the burden in cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our Mission is "to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death"
To improve quality of life and logevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
Working Groups goals is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
ESC Councils goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE IN EUROPE
Already recognised as the reference for cardiology in Europe, the European Society of Cardiology has developed a new programme of educational courses to meet the International demand for ESC Science and Knowledge. The ESC has continually played a major role in raising the standard of cardiovascular care and disease prevention in Europe.
Using its network of national and regional partnerships the ESC will further promote its scientific initiatives and publications to an even wider - truly global - audience working closely with its Affiliated Societies. The programme consists usually of one-day courses, organised in selected countries outside of Europe, often in conjunction with an existing conference or meeting. So far eight courses have been agreed on for this new ESC programme. At the recent World Congress of Cardiology in China, another partnership was finalised with the Great Wall International Cardiology Congress. In September representatives from the ESC will then bring the programme to the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte, where the first international courses will take place during the Brazilian Society of Cardiology Congress. The initiative will then establish a presence at congresses and with international societies in countries such as Malaysia, India and Saudi Arabia. There are many other Societies affiliated with the ESC and the programme is certain to develop in the future.
The project will be run under the guidance of the ESC Board, which has formed the Committee for Global Scientific Activities. This committee is chaired by Professor Michel Komajda, President Elect, the current ESC President, Professor Roberto Ferrari, Professor Panos Vardas, the new President Elect, Professor Fausto Pinto, Congress Committee chair, Professor Thierry Gillebert, Ms Isabel Bardinet, ESC CEO, Mr Ben Hainsworth, ESC Congresses and Meetings Division Director, and Mr Cyril Moulin, ESC Scientific Director. They will ensure the successful implementation of the programme into 2011 and beyond.
The development of ESC In Your Region will build closer relationships with non-European scientific communities and establish the ESC within the global Cardiology network.
