The MAESTRIA consortium consists of 18 partners: 12 academic institutions with a strong focus on clinical data integration and artificial intelligence research, 5 biotech companies (SMEs) and 1 large imaging company. The consortium benefits from the close integration of academic partners and industry partners with their joint involvement in all the work packages characterised by a collaborative bidirectional sharing of expertise and data. MAESTRIA is coordinated by Prof S. HATEM a clinician-scientist with substantial experience delivering successful multi-centre collaborative research projects (FP7 EUTRAF and H2020 CATCH-ME), former coordinator of a Leduc Foundation transatlantic network of Excellence on Atrial Fibrillation and executive director of SU-ICAN, a translational research excellence centre.


MAESTRIA combines scientific, clinical, and methodological excellence in the research on cardiac diseases, genomic, metabolism, cardiac imaging pathophysiology and data science.
