The Cardiovascular Round Table (CRT), founded in 2001, is 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.
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.
In addition the CRT is meant to serve the ESC as a ‘think-tank’ in which through listening, understanding and learning from each other, strategic priorities for the ESC and its future can be set.
The mission of the CRT is to provide a political platform to achieve widespread recognition of the importance of cardiovascular health in Europe.
The CRT is co-chaired by the ESC President-Elect and an Industry representative.
