EHRA Inventors Award 2016

EHRA Innovation Committee aims at stimulating innovative thinking by recognising novelties with the EHRA Inventors Award.

2016 Winner : Professor G. André Ng


What is the EHRA Inventors Award?

With the great success of the First edition of the EHRA Inventors Award 2015, the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), offered for the second year consecutive year an Award to one of the most innovative clinicians and scientists working in the field of Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology.

As every year, the innovation project should relate to the field of EP and address a novel approach, which may include software, hardware, drugs etc. It could be at an early stage (basic research, feasibility study, development of technology) or in a later stage (system development).

The innovation was submitted (in a protected manner) to the EHRA Innovation Committee members, who have signed a non-disclosure agreement prior to evaluating the applications.

The best 3 applicants were chosen, based on the selection criteria and quality of the written applications, and were invited to present their proposal during an Innovation Session at CARDISOTIM -EHRA EUROPACE 2016 ( Nice, France). The winner had the highest combined score for the written proposal and the oral presentation.

The prize recognised Professor Ng’s novel method which identifies patients who are at risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and could potentially save thousands of lives. 

A diploma was given along with a financial grant up to 5.000 € to be used for a course in entrepreneurship or comparable, in order to support him in further developing his invention.
