- Adult Congenital Heart Disease
- Atherosclerosis & Vascular Biology
- Cardiovascular Regenerative & Reparative Medicine
- Myocardial Function
- Pulmonary Circulation and Right Ventricular Function
The first author/presenter of each best abstract will receive a Working Group Award of 500€. Membership in the awarding Working Group is mandatory to receive the prizes.
