Call for Technology and Innovation

EHRA Congress

Submissions are open - Don't wait till the last minute.

Submit your innovation here:


Submission deadline is Thursday 5 December, 23:59 (Paris Time)


The EHRA Innovation Stage is aimed at clinicians, scientists and engineers. Your invention or innovation should be on the broad topic of cardiac arrhythmias and tackle a novel approach.

It could be you have developed software, a new device, have identified a new use for a drug or other small molecule, or brought a business approach to an aspect of cardiac rhythm management that can be considered an invention.

All pre-commercial revenue stages will be considered, so your idea may be still in basic research, or have progressed all the way to early clinical trials, but it should have moved beyond the idea stage.

Key dates


  • 5 December - Closing Call for Technology and Innovation
  • End of December - Results will be announced
