ESC Working Groups activities at ESC Congress

The ESC Working Groups contribute every year to the organisation of ESC Congress and participate in many scientific sessions.

Awards at ESC Congress

The following ESC Working Groups are pleased to support high-quality research at ESC Congress:

Each Working Group will select the best two abstracts submitted in their topic of expertise. The presenter of each best abstract will receive an award and financial prize of 500€.

Abstract submission is now closed.

The finalists will be informed in July, and the results will be presented during the ESC Working Groups Networking Reception & Award Ceremony, at the ESC Congress 2020.
