ESC Endorsement Policy for live educational events - ESC Blueprint

ESC and Sub-Specialty endorsement are the official recognition by the ESC family of the high quality of educational programmes and their compliance with agreed ESC criteria.

From January 2019, the ESC Education Committee will only consider for endorsement live educational events (meetings/courses/congresses) that comply with the ESC blueprint:

  • The programme must be based on recent ESC guidelines and/or consensus documents from ESC and its constituent bodies. Case-based presentations are strongly encouraged.
  • The event must not promote single products/devices. If the event is sponsored, multiple companies must be sponsors (either financially or in kind sponsorship, with mono-sponsored events not endorsable).
  • Ideally, the event should align with identified needs and assess progression, with an evaluation mechanism implemented (pre- & post-tests).
  • Ideally, the event should be interactive to better engage participants (via group discussions, breakout sessions, voting...) and be open to everyone (no restricted access)
  • Learning objectives and expected outcomes should be clearly defined.
  • Feedback on the event is required.
  • Local National Cardiac Societies should be informed of the event and be involved in it if possible.
  • Events which ESC, and/or its constituent bodies, consider to be competition to ESC’s own activities or potentially harmful to ESC’s brand/image will not be endorsed.

To attract delegates to the endorsed live educational event, we strongly recommend that discounts on registration fees are offered to ESC/Associations Members.

Endorsement is subject to a contract between the requester and the ESC, defining roles and duties of each party, as well as to a fee payment.

Please note that endorsement may be granted or withheld in ESC's sole and absolute discretion.

To apply, please complete the application form and submit it to ESC, 3 months before the date of the live educational event.

Apply now

You will be informed, by email, no later than 1 month after your submission, if the endorsement has been granted or not.

If the endorsement of your live educational event, meeting/course/congress is granted, it will only be considered final upon contract signature and the royalty/endorsement fee has been paid.
