About the European Society of Cardiology
The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) is an independent, non-profit organisation. Our members and decision-makers are busy healthcare professionals who volunteer their time and expertise. The ESC represents more than 95,000 men and women in the field of cardiology from Europe, the Mediterranean Basin and far beyond.
The ESC is unique in representing the full spectrum of cardiology. Our established subspecialty communities enable us to address every aspect of cardiology.
ESC Young Community
The ESC Young Community comprises 11 groups: one for general cardiology and 10 for subspecialties.

The ESC acts as a united voice for cardiology, advocating for favourable cardiovascular policy and collaboration with all who have a role in the field.

This five-year strategic plan ensures our society stays fully aligned with its mission and that our strategic priorities remain relevant.
National Cardiac Societies
ESC National Cardiac Societies are involved in advancing ESC science and sharing this knowledge and best practice with their members.

Relationships with Industry: the ESC Approach
While ESC activities are organised independently by the ESC, their costs are offset indirectly and in part by funding from the healthcare industry.
