Dear colleagues

EuroThrombosis & EuroVessels 2021 is a joint scientific meeting organised by the Working Group on Thrombosis and the Working Group on Aorta and Peripheral Vascular Diseases of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).

An intense three-day Scientific Programme will update you from basic science to translational medicine and clinical practice in the areas of vascular biology, thrombosis and atheroclerosis.

Topics will include coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, atrial fibrillation, stroke, aortic syndromes and cardiovascular prevention. Pharmacotherapy and the use of endovascular devices will form a substantial part of the meeting, giving the clinician an update to guide and encourage optimal day-to-day clinical practice.

At this meeting, the aetiology and basic principles of these conditions and disease states will be explored in depth, to drive forward research and innovation in these areas. Basic and translational science will be presented alongside the latest concepts in diagnosis and treatment.

A significant part of the meeting will be dedicated to the presentation of original clinical and translational research in poster format, allowing the exchange of ideas and experience among researchers and clinicians.

The scientific programme will be delivered by an expert faculty consisting of the most prominent European names in the respective disease areas. Alongside opportunities for education and learning, the possibilities for informal interaction between young clinicians/scientists and experienced researchers, clinicians and faculty elements will create unique opportunities for development of new ideas and future collaboration.

The beautiful city of Lisbon, repeatedly named as one of the best tourist destinations in Europe, is the perfect setting for this major scientific event. Being modern but also associated with great traditions, Lisbon has a special atmosphere and ambience recognised by all its visitors.

EuroThrombosis & EuroVessels 2021 will become an important milestone in continuing medical education in 2020. We very much hope you will be able to share in this exciting, cutting-edge meeting with us, attended by clinicians and scientists from across the world.
