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
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission: To promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
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

The European Working Group on Cardiac Cellular Electrophysiology was founded in 1978 by Prof. E. Coraboeuf (Paris) & Prof. E. Carmeliet (Leuven), and this first nucleus soon also included Prof. S. Weidmann (Bern).
The first meeting took place in Leuven, bringing together all labs of Europe investigating the properties of the cardiac action potential and the underlying ionic currents. This first meeting was attended by some 100 people, and the major goal was to share scientific information in order to advance research in a quickly developing field.
The passing of one of the founders, Prof. Coraboeuf, in September 1998, was fittingly remembered by a symposium organised by Prof. R. Fischmeister in Paris, in September 1999.The meeting brought together scientists from all over the world, and demonstrated the immense progress that has been made in the field over the last 25 years.Some 10 years after its founding, the Working Group became a member of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).
