In addition to its core scientific activities, the ESC develops initiatives which support its mission to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease.
Initiatives cover a range of objectives, from awareness raising and information sharing to projects with a specific mission to drive change in CV treatment & care.
The ESC is also involved in a number of European Union funded projects, providing expertise and utilising its extensive network within the global cardiology community to disseminate scientific best practice and updates.
A strategic forum for high-level dialogue between industry (pharmaceuticals, devices and equipment) and ESC leadership to identify and discuss key strategic issues for the future of cardiovascular health in Europe.
A unique and ambitious project that aims to provide the evidence needed to improve decision making, patient care and bridge the gap between policies and realities.
Annual events across the globe that aim to raise awareness among healthcare professionals and non-medics s that heart failure is a serious health threat at international, EU and member state level.
Reports on preventive cardiology that facilitate the sharing of best practice and inspire health professionals in the field of preventive cardiology.
Aims to improve transcatheter valve interventions (both aortic and mitral) across Europe and raise awareness on the importance of valvular heart disease in the general population.
Cardiology is undergoing a gender flip, with a huge increase in the number of women training to be cardiologists (today 70% of cardiologists in training are women). The Women in ESC Initiative aims to ensure women coming into the field are sufficiently armed for successful careers.

EU Funded Projects
An exciting project that brings together the expertise of leading academic institutes, healthcare organisations and specialised professional organisations, with the aim of improving the care of patients with AFib.
Aims to prevent patients having a structural heart remodelling and therefore at risk, to develop a heart failure.
If you’re a scientist, a funding agency or a policy maker, you want to know what’s happening in cardiovascular research to make informed decisions. Are there potential partners for my work in Europe? Is a proposed study novel? Are there urgent funding needs and gaps? CardioScape has the answers.
Supporting Good Causes
In Europe today, children born with congenital malformation do not have equal access to appropriate care and, in some cases, the range of disparity is significant. To help remedy this situation, the European Society of Cardiology supports the European Heart for Children.
