Find out more about the role and objectives of the EAPCI Web & Communications Committee

What is the role of your committee within EAPCI?

The committee oversees the communication structure within the EAPCI. A major focus is on the presentation and content of the two websites at ESC and PCRonline. We ensure that members are made aware of news, activities, programmes, grants and of course the main meetings EuroPCR and the EAPCI contributions to the European Society of Cardiology Congress.
We provide the content for the regular Newsletters and updates, as well as electronic and direct member surveys.

Which will be the focus of your Committee in the next 2 years?

The aim of the committee will be to enhance the visibility of EAPCI in Europe and the world. We will try to find closer links to the National societies representing Interventional Cardiologists.
We will improve the content of both websites and enhance the links, leading to an easier access to information about Clinical and organisational facts.

How do you envisage your collaboration with the other EAPCI Committees?

We support other committees with the communication infrastructure and provide the newsletters and web to share information and messages. We envisage close collaboration with the International Affairs and NS committee to improve our links with our international colleagues.
