DON’T MISS OUT ON OUR OFFER TO DEVELOP INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIPS WITHIN THE ESVS IRBD COMMITTEE!

Do you want to support the ESVS achieve its goal to improve vascular health for the public benefit?

ESVS is looking for a Committee member within the Industry Relations and Business Development Committee (IRBD) for a mandate of 3 years (2021-2023).

Developing and maintaining good relationships with our industry partners is key to developing the society. Indeed, ESVS relies on several sources of income to develop and run activities for the benefits of members, including industry funding. Being up to date with industry news and sharing the best science with companies towards continuous improvement of vascular heath represents an important position within the society.

The role requires the ability to maintain a strong balance between engaging with medical device or pharma companies whilst guaranteeing ESVS’ scientific and educational independence and neutrality. As such, candidates will need to demonstrate experience in business development in the vascular field as well strong support of the ESVS values. The successful candidate will be an ESVS member and will commit to engaging with IRBD and ESVS activities.

The IRBD is composed of the Treasurer as Chair, the President, the President Elect, the Secretary General and an Academy representative. As such, the successful candidate will be in close contact with the ESVS leadership.

The IRBD meets virtually on a monthly basis (1 hour Zoom meetings) and, when times allow, face-to-face at the Annual Meeting. In addition, contacts with companies are maintained as required (virtually or by attending related events such as Charing Cross or EVC), and further email communications with Committee members and the ESVS office remain frequent.
