About ECCR

The history of the European Council for Cardiovascular Research (ECCR)  goes back more than 30 years when the ‘European Blood Pressure Group’ held its first meeting in March 1979 in Cambridge, UK. To date more than 30 international meetings have been held in various European locations. For more information about ECCR history click here.

The mission of ECCR is to promote prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease and the preservation and protection of good health through experimental and clinical research in hypertension, cardiovascular and metabolic disease.

ECCR holds an Annual Meeting in October. The purpose of these scientific meetings is to provide a forum for active clinical and non-clinical researchers to discuss important aspects of their work, to advance and strengthen European research in the field of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and cardiometabolic disease. The meetings bring together both senior and junior scientists from the leading European groups in the field of cardiovascular research.

ECCR is a member of the Council for Basic Cardiovascular Science (CBCS) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), whose aims are to enhance the importance of basic science to clinical cardiology and act as a Europe wide forum for cardiovascular research societies, and a conduit for positive collaboration.
