EURObservational Research Programme

Europe needs reliable data on cardiovascular (CV) disease and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) is the body which should provide such data. Registries are essential to assess CV epidemiology, diagnostic/therapeutic processes and adherence to Guidelines.

In 2000 the European Society of Cardiology started the Euro Heart Survey programme with the objective to assess adherence to Guidelines in Cardiology.

In 2009 the EURObservational Research Programme (EORP) was launched. The aim of this programme of registries is to provide a better understanding of medical practice, based on observational data collected with more robust methodological procedures.


The EORP in figures

  • 20 different registries
  • more than 2 200 centres with 100 000 patients enrolled in EORP registries
  • more than 100 publications from EHS/EORP
  • Today, over 100 countries have already participated in at least one study & we invite you to join!

Results from completed EORP studies are published in the European Heart Journal as well as other major scientific reviews.

The main features of the EURObservational Research Programme

  • Use of appropriate methodological procedures
  • A network of volunteer centres appointed by ESC constituent bodies
  • Use on-line electronic Case Report Form (CRF) allowing user-friendly web-based data entry
  • Full involvement of the ESC National Cardiac Societies (NCSs) and relevant ESC Constituent Bodies

Cardiology Registries

Clinical Registries

Common Diseases to assess the management of diseases of major impact in terms of incidence. These registries will provide epidemiological data and provide reports on the application of clinical practice guidelines recommendations.

Intervention to assess the impact of interventional procedures and imaging techniques.

Rare Diseases to assess epidemiology and management of rarer conditions as arising critical issues in terms of public health (severity of the disease, stringent clinical needs, costs).

Prevention Registries

Prevention to assess cardiovascular risk factors epidemiology and prevention measures.
