Description du poste et des missions
The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) is a volunteer-led, not-for-profit, medical society. It is an independent, non-governmental organisation.
The ESC is a source of high quality, evidence-based science that pushes the boundaries of cardiovascular medicine.

The ESC coordinates observational registries, creates clinical practice guidelines, and organises and endorses educational programmes. We disseminate robust and independent science through our congresses, journals and educational digital tools. We’re the voice of the cardiology community when advocating for heart-health policies, regulations and funding.
All of these things enable us to identify cardiovascular trends, address inequalities, share best practices to improve standards of care for patients
