European Research Area Network on Cardiovascular Diseases (ERA-CVD)

Among non‐communicable diseases Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the major cause of death in Europe, claiming more than 4 million people per year in the 53 member states of the WHO European Region and around 2 million in the European Union. Recent data indicate that up to 80% of all healthcare expenditure in Europe is allocated to chronic diseases, with CVD alone being estimated to cost the EU economy more than 196 billion € every year.

CVD research is not only a crucial area in health research overall, but could become an outstanding example of research driven innovation across Europe. An effective coordination of research at national and EU level, increased cross-disciplinary interaction and research advancements are urgently needed. By gathering their forces and funding capacities so far 18 countries aim at responding to this demand by setting up a new ERA‐Net Cofund action (European Research Area Network co-funded by the European Commission, EC) dedicated to cardiovascular diseases (ERA-CVD) . ERA-CVD officially started in October 2015.
