EHRA Surveys and the EHRA Scientific Initiatives Committee

The EHRA Scientific Initiatives Committee (SIC) undertakes research through short EP surveys with the aim of providing a picture of daily EP practice in Europe and insight into how consistently arrhythmia treatment is applied across ESC member countries. Particular focus is placed on the implementation of current arrhythmia-related ESC Guidelines.

The SIC conducts several types of surveys including centre-based (addressing the EHRA Scientific Research Network), physician-based and patient-based, together with new initiatives, such as systematic reviews and meta-analysis. 

The EHRA 2022-2024 Scientific Initiatives Committee Members are:

Prof. Julian Chun (Chair), Dr. Sergio Castrejon (Co-Chair), Dr. Laura Perrotta, Prof. Andreas Metzner, Prof. Laurent Roten, Assoc. Prof. Piotr Futyma, Assoc. Prof. Arian Sultan, Prof. Sergio Richter, Dr. Giacomo Mugnai, Dr. Ante Anic, Prof. Federico Migliore, Prof. Giulio Conte, Dr. Antonio Berruezo Sanchez, and Dr. Rui Providencia

2022-2024 Strategy

The EHRA Scientific Initiative Committee (SIC) calls for your ideas and your scientific international cooperation.

The committee invites you to propose your ideas for surveys and meta-analyses to help close the gap(s) of evidence in the field of electrophysiology or pacing, with emphasis on:

  1. Arrhythmia management/patient care
  2. Implementation of technological innovations
  3. Arrhythmias and heart failure

If you would like to submit a proposal which could fit into the above mentioned areas, the SIC committee would be delighted to consider and review it.

In addition, the methodology of this clinical research will now call upon three stages: inventory, identification and correction of potential deficiencies, mid-term re-evaluation.



Work with EHRA

Submit your proposal


The EHRA SIC invites you to submit your research proposal (survey, systematic review/meta-analysis, etc.) and get the opportunity to carry out your research together with the committee.

Please note EHRA will provide expertise on accepted submissions, however no funds can be made available.

The two research proposal forms can be downloaded according to the research you wish to submit.

Join the EHRA Scientific Initiatives Research Network and participate in the  surveys

The results of these surveys enable us to gather some valuable and essential information, thanks to participating centres who regularly complete the surveys and entrust us with their data.

The results of each survey are published in the EP Europace journal.

Moreover, the best two centres who replied to the last surveys will be offered co-authorship of an article published in the EP Europace journal.

If you are not yet a member and would like to be part of this initiative, join by clicking on the link below.
