PRESTIGE-AF’s Year 1 Annual Meeting at Imperial College London

On the 14th December 2018, members of the PRESTIGE-AF Consortium travelled from across Europe to our year one annual meeting, held in the majestic 170 Queen’s Gate in the grounds of Imperial College London.

During the one-day meeting, the attendees discussed administrative, legal, financial and operational aspects of the project and we also welcomed two members of the  Expert External Advisory Board (EEAB) for the first time. The Coordinator (Imperial)  led the process, providing a framework for discussion while ensuring that all attendees were made aware of the project’s ambitions, scope, and obligations.

Professor Roland Veltkamp kicked-off the meeting by clearly summarising the objectives and aims of PRESTIGE-AF, whereby scientists and clinicians across Europe have been brought together to reduce the risk of further Stroke in this group of patients.

The day was a great success which allowed collaborative learning and exchange of information. Plans have already begun for our year two annual meeting, scheduled to take place at the end of 2019.
