Welcome to the European Society of Cardiology. Our mission: to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe
 

Alliance for Biomedical Research in Europe (BioMed Alliance)

The Alliance for Biomedical Research in Europe (BioMed Alliance) is a unique initiative representing 21 leading research-oriented medical societies that include more than 200.000 researchers across Europe.

The mission of the BioMed Alliance is to advance and strengthen biomedical research, in particular translational research, which is crucial for innovation.

The European Society of Cardiology is a founding member of the Alliance for Biomedical Research in Europe (BioMed Alliance), together with the European CanCer Organisation (ECCO), the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD).

The BioMed Alliance aims at promoting the best interests and values of research across all medical disciplines in Europe, in those general areas where common interest is identified.

The objectives of the BioMed Alliance include to:

  • facilitate and improve biomedical research in Europe
  • develop a framework for better training and mobility of young researchers in Europe
  • improve public understanding of medical science in Europe

Through its actions, the Alliance intends to:        

  • promote excellence in European biomedical research
  • advocate for increased funding in favour of biomedical research
