Collaborations & Outreach

Facilitating networking for our members

EAS has created, within the structure of our Society, networks that allow our members with special interests to more easily collaborate with each other. Find out more about the activities of the FH Studies Collaboration (FHSC), and the Lipid Clinic Network.

Supporting external collaborations to achieve our common goals

EAS works together with other professional and scientific societies and patient representative groups where we have common aims – for progress of research in the field and to improve management of cardiovascular disease and lipid disorders.

With scientifically related European and international organisations, we look for opportunities to collaborate and share expertise, for example, co-organising joint sessions at Congress, or co-authoring publications. Our collaborations include joint initiatives with the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the International Atherosclerosis Society (IAS), the European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (EFLM), and the European Society of Vascular Medicine (ESVM).

EAS is also member of Biomedical Alliance in Europe (Biomed Alliance), a non-profit organisation representing healthcare professionals and researchers in the biomedical field at the European level, the European Alliance for Cardiovascular Health (EACH), and the World Heart Federation (WHF).

Patient group partnership

Through the FH Studies Collaboration, EAS partners FH Europe, the European FH Patient Network.

Activities with national atherosclerosis societies

EAS has close links with national atherosclerosis societies, as we share many mutual interests and common goals. We coordinate an annual meeting of the Presidents of European national societies, to facilitate collaborative approaches to the scientific, social and political challenges that many organisations face. EAS offers travel grants and membership benefits to national societies’ members, and EAS takes part in national societies’ own meetings as part of our educational programme.

European Lipoprotein Club (ELC)

Since 2015, EAS has been a supporter of the European Lipoprotein Club, providing support to the annual meeting and administrative support to the running of this independent Society. Find out more about the ELC and its annual meeting.
