SwissRhythm Research Prize 2021

To: All members of the Working Group for Pacing and Electrophysiology of the Swiss Society of Cardiology

Dear colleagues,

The SwissRhythm Research Prize will be awarded for the third time during SwissRhythm, the annual meeting of the Working Group for Pacing and Electrophysiology of the Swiss Society of Cardiology, which will take place on 18 – 19 November 2021.

The Research Prize is an initiative of the Board of the Working Group in order to promote research in the field of arrhythmias, pacing and electrophysiology in Switzerland by officially recognizing authors of high-quality scientific papers.

The Prize will be awarded to a young researcher born 1981 or later for the best scientific work in the field of arrhythmias, pacing and electrophysiology, in basic sciences or clinical sciences, published recently (since 1st of November 2020) as first (or co-first) author in a peer reviewed journal or in-press, for scientific work that has been primarily performed in Switzerland. A researcher can only submit one research paper.

The amount of the SwissRhythm Research Prize is 5’000 Swiss Francs.

It is important to note that the SwissRhythm Research Prize is intended to be awarded to a nominee based on the scientific value of the submitted work, and not on the scientific profile, previous achievements or future potential of the applicant or his/her team.

All researchers are invited to submit their scientific papers and a short cover letter by email to info@pacemaker.ch prior to the application deadline at 23:59 on Sunday, October 24, 2021.

Yours sincerely,

Sven Reek
