More than 30 years ago, ISE established a Young Investivator’s Award, created to be a stage for young researchers present their investigations and developments in the field of electrocardiology. This is a very unique moment of our congresses, when, in a special session, all attentions are focused in the presentation of new research by early career colleagues to the audience and a judging committee of established experts.
