Welcome message

Dear colleagues,

The annual international conference ESC Heart & Stroke is the pivotal meeting of the ESC Council on Stroke, dedicated to specialists and general practitioners as well as all healthcare and allied professionals interested in all aspects of stroke prevention, management and therapies, as well as heart and brain interaction at basic, clinical and procedural levels.

KOL‘s from a wide range of specialties will discuss multidisciplinary and focused aspects with emphasis on the latest developments, practical experience sharing and guidelines illustration in the light of the latest research. Over 3 days in themed sessions during the afternoons, a variety of formats enables course participants to be actively involved in interaction with the leaders in the field, sharing practical and research experience. The final day is fully dedicated to  stimulative cases discussion, carefully selected to illustrate the key contemporary topics in the field.

Poster sessions (including poster prize awarding) enable investigators to share their work with large ESC family audience.

On behalf of the Programme Committee, we would like to invite you to actively participate to the Heart & Stroke Conference, which will be held from Wednesday June 4 to Friday June 6, 2021. We look forward to welcoming you for this privileged moment of exchange and meetings.


Professor Jan Kovac, FESC
