We will attract and connect new talents from different disciplines and provide opportunities and programs for developing their careers.


To ensure ongoing high-quality and innovative research, the DCVA invests in identifying and nurturing promising cardiovascular researchers who will lead future national and international consortia hold strategic positions in the non-academic sector. We are committed to attracting and connecting talented individuals from diverse disciplines, offering them career development opportunities.

Through targeted grants, we bridge gaps for scientists from junior to senior levels, promoting new initiatives and collaboration. In addition to funding, the DCVA provides these talented researchers with an education program focused on leadership, management, and entrepreneurial skills. We offer workshops, masterclasses, and events to enhance their essential "soft skills" for future leadership in the cardiovascular field.
