HFA Winter Meeting - previous meetings

HFA Winter Meetings are a long-standing event in the HFA calendar

What our attendees say

 Participating in the HFA Winter Meeting on Translational Heart Failure Research is a unique opportunity to:

  • Develop a global network by discussing our findings with experts in the cardiovascular field.
  • Meet investigators from around the world presenting cutting-edge research on the latest advances in topics related to heart failure.
  • Gain visibility and feedback on our research. The size of the meeting allows experts in the field of cardiovascular research to see our work, and dedicated viewing times are planned for discussion with faculties and attendees. The poster sessions allow us to speak one-on-one with people interested in our research. Presenters benefit from this interaction by gaining feedback on projects.
  • Be recognised. Young researchers meeting certain criteria are eligible to participate in the Poster Award Competition.
  • Have our abstracts selected for the annual Heart Failure Congress and published in the European Journal of Heart Failure.
