The theme of EHRA 2023: '20th anniversary, starting with a New EHRA'

EHRA-20yearsWithLogo-web.jpgThis edition will be special because it will mark the 20th anniversary of EHRA – beautiful Barcelona is the perfect place for such a celebration!

We prepare a very special programme for this setting, focusing on a comprehensive and pragmatic approach to our discipline, with lots of hands-on workshops and educational sessions. 

Discover the programme


Computer-demo-EHRA.jpgAn innovative simulation village, organised hand in hand with our industry partners and very experienced faculty, will offer you a first look at, and a chance to try, sophisticated educational tools. Many other novelties will be there for you to explore, but we want to keep them a surprise!

More than 120 scientific sessions will be taking place in Barcelona, along with practical tutorials and unique networking opportunities

Presenter-stage-Young-EHRA-1500x1000.jpgAt EHRA 2023, you will hear from top specialists in the world, who will share with us their knowledge, experience, and their most recent innovations in atrial fibrillation, ventricular arrhythmia ablation, physiological pacing, ICDs for sudden cardiac death prevention, and heart failure management.

Digital health and sustainability in EP are becoming more and more important, and experts in these fields will be joining us as well. You will also expand your knowledge about wearables, remote monitoring and artificial intelligence and their role in personalised medicine in patients with cardiac arrhythmias.

Finally, many sessions will be directed specifically at patients, to provide them with an update on the latest findings on cardiac arrhythmias management.

For those unable to travel, many sessions will be streamed online and live from Barcelona

Research-Gateway-EHRA-1500x1000.jpgYou will be able to ask your questions to the experts, interact with colleagues and visit the abstract discussion rooms where presenters will share their research.  

We look forward to receiving your latest findings to be shared and discussed with the community onsite in Barcelona and online around the world.

From Abstracts to Clinical Cases, Late-Breaking Science or Innovation & Technology see how and when to submit your work.



On behalf of the EHRA Board, we look forward to meeting you again in person in Barcelona for an exciting EHRA 2023!
