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
Each ESC Working Group organises educational programmes and research activities. It also gives access to a wide range of resources from past events.
Educational programmes vary depending on each Working Group and can include the followings:
Webinars are live course transmitted over the web. They give you the opportunity to update your knowledge, interact with key opinion leaders, check your progress with online MCQs and gain EBAC CME credits! Sessions are also recorded so that you can still access resources for e-learning objectives.
The Working Group on Myocardial and Pericardial Diseases proposes Webinars.
Courses follow a practical and interactive 'how to' style with clear learning objectives. They can be submitted for accreditation through EBAC. Courses take place at the European Heart House (Sophia-Antipolis, France) or at other venues in Europe.
Four Working Groups propose live courses. Read more and access resources below:
“All about clinical trials”
“Coronary Physiology in the Catheterization Laboratory”
The Working Group on Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventricular Function endorses an Annual International Master’s Degree and a Biennial European Spring School.
Some Working Groups present a selection of interesting Cases with suggested treatments/answers. If you are interested in submitting a case, please visit your Working Group education page and contact the Working Group Web-editor.

In order to improve clinical practice, the ESC charges groups of European experts with the task of creating recommendations and guidelines for clinical practice, published as Task Force Reports, or other Study Groups.
Each Working Group has ever participated in the creation or reviewing of these guidelines. Discover below the list of published ESC Guidelines or browse on your Working Groups' education page.

Working Group Events
During the ESC Congress or Working Group annual meetings, some Working Groups acknowledge the outstanding work of young researcher in offering research awards.
Awardees are selected among best submitted abstracts and are given a diploma plus a financial prize. They are also invited to be involved in the working group activities.
Discover the previous awardees and become the next!
Open to Working Group members, the Exchange Grant is a great opportunity for young investigators to conduct scientific research in the field of the Working Group. The grant covers the salary of a 12 month research proposal in an ESC member country or ESC Affiliated country and aims to:

In 2009, the ESC launched the EURObservational Research Programme (EORP) to provide a better understanding of medical practice, based on observational data collected with more robust methodological procedures.
This programme includes 20 different registries and four of them reach Working Group topics, thus directly implicating members of these Groups.
Myocardial and Pericardial Diseases topics:
Cardiomyopathy and Myocarditis Registry
Myocardial Function topics:
PeriPartum CardioMyopathy (PPCM) Registry
Registry Of Pregnancy And Cardiac disease (ROPAC)
Valvular Heart Diseases topics:
TransCatheter Valve Treatment (TCVT) Registry
Coronary Pathophysiology and Microcirculation topics:
Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventriculat Function topics:
Pulmonary EmbolIsm ThrOmbolysis (PEITHO) International Study
Thrombosis and Pulmonary Circulation topics:
