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.
We are a not-for-profit medical society led by expert volunteers. We unite member National Cardiac Societies, and cardiovascular ESC sub-specialty communities.
Harmonising care, maintaining professional standards and informing European policy makers.
The ESC is unique in representing the full spectrum of cardiology. Our established subspecialty communities enable us to address every aspect of cardiology.
The ESC Young Community comprises 10 groups: 1 for general cardiology and 9 for sub-specialties.

The ESC acts as a united voice for cardiology to advocate for favourable cardiovascular policy and collaborate with all those who have a role in the field.
This five-year strategic plan ensures that our society remains fully aligned with its mission and that our strategic priorities remain relevant to a changing world.
ESC member National Cardiac Societies are involved in advancing ESC science and sharing this knowledge and best practice with their members.
The ESC has European roots, but a global scope - collaboration with ESC Affiliated Cardiac Societies is essential to advancing the worldwide battle against cardiovascular disease.
