EAPCI Hosting Centres 2024
8th November 2023
Dear Presidents of the National Societies or Working Groups of Interventional Cardiology,
In 2023 I have chaired the EAPCI grants training program committee. Under my lead and with the cooperation of the members of the committee and the EAPCI staff, our Association has obtained an unprecedented number of grants. Furthermore, we have paid particular attention to an equal distribution of the grants between genders and to favour candidates from Countries where the possibilities of getting access to training are more difficult, because it is our goal to facilitate high-level education to the grant winners to improve health care once they are back to their Country of origin.
In 2024 we will try to replicate the outstanding performance we delivered in 2023, with the added value of including many more centres of excellence where the award winners can train and develop their research projects.
For this reason, I am taking the liberty to writing to you to make sure that you are aware of the extraordinary opportunity that an EAPCI training grant represents for young interventionalists, and to ask you to promote this initiative of our European Association within your National Society.
The Centres of excellence can directly apply to appear in the list of EAPCI Hosting Centres 2024 by visiting our webpage here
With the best personal regards
