    These are unprecedented times that require unprecedented measures. The rapid spread of the novel coronavirus and the resulting travel restrictions imposed on many physicians have required the cancellation of EHRA 2020 (29-31 March, Vienna) and ESC Preventive Cardiology 2020 (2-4 April, Malaga).

The ESC is reviewing all other upcoming congresses and events on a case-by-case basis. Any changes will be announced on the ESC website.

Our heartfelt best wishes go out to you and your patients
