Why come to Lyon
Classed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1998, the former capital of Gaul, Lyon, boasts over 2,000 years of history. Its exceptional heritage is enriched by the signature works of contemporary architects: Renzo Piano, Jean Nouvel, Santiago Calatrava, Coop Himmelb(l)au.
The city is also renowned for its gastronomy, in large part thanks to Paul Bocuse, who will soon celebrate his 50th anniversary as a 3-star chef! With 15 Michelin-star restaurants, the future Cité de la Gastronomie and 4,000 eateries to its name, Lyon doesn’t need to prove that it is World’s Capital of Gastronomy.
The Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology (AEPC) was founded in Lyon in 1963 and subsequently has created a network of specialists working in the same field encountering similar problems. The mission of AEPC is to promote (a) the knowledge of the normal and diseased heart and circulation and (b) exchange of knowledge and (c) continuous education. Read more ›
