Testimonials from peers

Tiffany Hu, Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN), ACCA Research Prize Finalist 2015

The Acute Cardiovascular Care congress is an extraordinary opportunity to engage with the scientific community, discuss our latest findings, and move forward in scientific discovery. 

Jakob Hartvig Thomsen, Copenhagen University Hospital, Rigshospitalet,  ACCA Research Prize Finalist 2015

The ACCA congress provides a great venue for young researchers to present and receive feedback on their findings from fellow peers and senior experts. The congress has very much focus on the younger participants and promotes their research and contribution in dedicated sessions such as the Young Investigator Award, Rapid Fire, case reports and the ACCA Research Prize. The congress provides a great opportunity and various ways to improve your skills in disseminating and discussing research and not least inspiration to future projects. 

Jasper Boeddinghaus, Cardiovascular Research Institute Basel CRIB, Young Investigator Award Finalist, 2015

For me, there are a lot of benefits of submitting an abstract to Acute Cardiovascular Care. First, I will get the chance to present my own data to experts in the field of cardiology. This is a main step for me as a young researcher. Second, It will help me to meet other young researchers from all over Europe and start building up my own network. Third, meetings like the ACC combine fun and science, which is very important to me.
