The HFPN has launched the European Heart Failure Mission research priorities, outlining six areas where European Union (EU) funding programmes (such as EU4Health and Horizon Europe) should direct investments in heart failure research.

The research priorities were co-developed with HFPN members, including clinical experts and patient advocates. This resource aims to fill a gap in the heart failure policy landscape with consensus-based priority areas for research.

With appropriate funding, heart failure research could unlock opportunities in heart failure that would ensure a timely and accurate diagnosis, more effective therapies and disease management, as well as better quality of life for people with heart failure.

Heart failure is often diagnosed too late, there is a lack of understanding of the underlying processes leading to the syndrome, and quality of life is often overlooked. It is vital to address these issues to enable people living with heart failure to live better.
