  6. Strengthen the collaboration with established research groups: writing meta-analysis, promoting common research in prehospital triage 
  7. Meeting with science council of the Dutch society of Cardiology (NVVC) to submit this topic on the knowledge agenda (Kennisagenda NVVC)
  8. Setting up the Dutch registry of cardiac amyloidosis; This lays a foundation for new clinical studies, registry-based trials and Dutch analysis of new therapy in patients with cardiac amyloidosis.
  9. Promote common national research on cardiac amyloidosis; Due to the composition and binding effect of the working group, scientific research into this rare disease is better streamlined, leaving room for new national initiatives. If they arise, joint grant applications (inter)nationally.
  10. Promoting international network and research (Berlin, London, Pavia); By organizing the experts involved within the Netherlands in a national working group, it is possible to speak with one voice on behalf of the working group.
