The Cardiovascular Round Table (CRT), founded in 2001, is a strategic forum for high level dialogue between ESC leadership and healthcare industry partners, to identify and discuss key strategic issues for the future of cardiovascular health in Europe.
The CRT's mission is to provide a political platform to achieve widespread recognition of the importance of cardiovascular health in Europe.Its overall aim is to create an environment in Europe that is favourable to cardiovascular research, innovation, prevention and management, to allow the ESC to leverage its unique position as a broker between professionals, industry and where appropriate any relevant third parties in order to become a key strategic force in cardiovascular health in Europe.The CRT serves as an ESC ‘think-tank’ through which members listen, understand and learn from each other and explore strategic priorities for the ESC.
The CRT comprises the ESC Board (leaders in the cardiovascular field) and representatives of 22 industry partners across the pharmaceuticals, devices and equipment sectors. It is co-chaired by the ESC President-Elect and an Industry representative.
Two annual meetings on 'game changing' topics that will significantly impact cardiology. Recent examples include eHealth, Clinical Trials and the sustainability of quality healthcare.
Up to four workshops per year focussing on specific issues relating to either Research and Development, Clinical Trials or Regulatory issues. Recent examples include Lipid-lowering strategies for reduction of cardiovascular risk and the treatment of chronic heart failure (clinical investigation of new medicinal products future directions).
The discussions and decisions that take place during ESC Cardiovascular Round Table (CRT)meetings and workshops, are captured in scientific papers and disseminated to the healthcare community through publication in relevant journals, social media and the press.
