HFA Workshops

Because science represents our core activity, the HFA organises workshops on important topics with the goal of promoting science, as well as helping clinicians and scientists with the publication of position papers.




With more than 175 experts involved in 15 Committees covering all the scope of heart failure, the HFA is actively supporting research and researchers.

Please find more information about HFA Committees here

Scientific meetings

On average 8 HFA workshops are planned per year with the aim of gathering eminent scientists around a specific topic.

HFA Workshops are usually closed events and might be supported by sponsors in the form of unrestricted educational grants. The scientific programme is not influenced in any way by its sponsors.

The conclusions result in various deliverables such as webinars, positions papers or sessions for HF Congress or HFA Winter Meeting

All the upcoming workshops are published in the main timeline. Go to HFA Homepage or click on the topic columun in the table hereunder to get more information.
