Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care.
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Our mission is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Improving the quality of life and reducing sudden cardiac death by limiting the impact of heart rhythm disturbances.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
This enthusiastic group met outside the congress centre on 1st May for a walk in Bois de Boulogne and received a traditional French gift for May Day, a bouquet of lily of the valley.
Organised in conjunction with the Fédération Française de Cardiologie, the HoT walk also promoted CPR demonstrations and information on Heart Failure in a dedicated area at the beginning of the walk.
It's NEW. It's EASY.

If your answer to these questions is yes, then this initiative, designed by the HFA, is for you. Join us and make the most of all the opportunities our initiative has to offer!
HoT stands for Heart failure specialists of Tomorrow and is a new initiative designed by the Heart Failure Association of the ESC.
Heart Failure is a growing problem which will overwhelm cardiology in the near future. We want you to be the future of the HFA and actively help us to tackle this global health priority.
The HOT initiative provides a platform for an active and creative network of young people interested in Heart Failure in a unique interdisciplinary manner.
The HFA wants to ensure mutual collaboration between different young professionals including cardiologists, nurses, physiotherapists, scientists and other disciplines.
The goal of the HOT initiative is to spread the HFA's mission to the younger generation and to promote young excellence in the field of Heart Failure.
Involvement in the HoT initiative will help you to:
Importantly, the HFA has a special membership fee for professionals who are 40 years old or under. For 72 euros, you have access to the HFA Online Education modules, the online version of the European Journal of Heart Failure and access to HF congress slides and educational material.
You can also join HFA committees and contribute to HFA newsletters and educational materials.
The HoT initiative aims to support nurses to develop their clinical and academic expertise through access to education, training and international collaboration with experts in the field.
Becoming a HoT member is a great way for nurses to network with other disciplines and stay up-to-date with novel advances in Heart Failure.
Join HoT today and help us to raise the international profile of Heart Failure nursing.
The HoT initiative gathers young people (undergraduate or PhD students, postdocs aged 40 and under) from different disciplines (medicine, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, biophysics, biomedical engineering, etc.), who are involved in research projects in the field of Heart Failure.
HoT network will help you to:
The HoT initiative has already established a co-operation with the Scientists of Tomorrow (SoT), the initiative of the Basic Research Council of ESC.
HoT national representatives are responsible for establishing and promoting the HoT initiative in their country and serving as a link between HoT members in their country and the HoT nucleus.
Go to the HoT national representative list and find the contact name for your country as well as the link to the national HoT webpage. If your country does not have one yet, please contact us and we will advise you when one is selected.
