A brief project presentation has been prepared by the Consortium, written in a style which is accessible to the non-specialist.

It has been produced both in electronic format and as a paper leaflet. The leaflet has been distributed at the XVII European Meeting on Hypertension (Milan June 15-19, 2007 - MIC - Milano Convention Centre), hosting a satellite symposium on "Integrating Genomics, Clinical Research and Care in Hypertension. The InGenious HyperCare European Network" (June 15, 2007).
