Expected results

EPIC-CVD will provide the first systematic comparison of existing major risk scores in a common set of participants across European populations


EPIC-CVD will create the first “detailed” risk scores that consider biomarkers of all phases of disease and be the first study capable of incorporating the interplay of nature and nurture for CVD risk prediction across Europe


The project will create Europe’s first risk assessment approaches focusing on “modifiable” risk scores with behavioural risk factors and objective lifestyle biomarkers


EPIC-CVD will undertake the first systematic evaluation of clinical and public health utility of modifiable and detailed risk scores across Europe


EPIC-CVD will address the broader societal implications of modifiable and detailed CVD risk scores across Europe
