Call for Cardiovascular Innovations


Deadline: Cardiovascular Innovations ideas must be submitted electronically by January 1, 2020.

Do you have the next innovative cardiovascular technology? We are actively searching for the latest inventions, innovations, and therapies to be presented and discussed in the CRT 2020 Cardiovascular Innovations sessions.

The interactive format of these sessions offers selected presenters the ability to introduce their technology to a panel of expert physicians that can comment on the innovation design, features, and potential benefits for both the patient and physician.

CRT 2020 invites you to submit information on new and innovative:

  • Devices & Software
  • Endovascular Intervention Technologies
  • Imaging Equipment
  • Percutaneous Valve Therapies
  • Structural Heart Technologies
  • Stent Technologies
  • Renal & Sympathetic Denervation Technologies
  • Robotic Catheter-Based Therapies


  • The top 10 submissions will be invited to present in a two-day competition at a special symposium during CRT 2020.  All presenters are expected to be present for both days.
  • Selected submissions of innovative technologies will be invited to orally present their technology during CRT 2020, and the presenters will be Adjunct Faculty. 
  • As a member of the Adjunct Faculty, your CRT 2020 registration fee will be discounted.
  • Cardiovascular Innovations sessions include, but are not limited to: DES, BRS & DCB Technologies, Valve & Structural.

Submission Details:

  • Submissions are open to all companies with innovative products/services that have not yet been fully market-released.
  • Technology status may include early stage/prototype, pre-clinicals, FIM, CEMark, or other. Clinical data are not required.

The CRT cardiovascular innovation award offers inventors and startups in the field of cardiology the opportunity to obtain exposure to their technology among the lead medical community, regulatory officers, industry, and investors with the potential to advance their technology forward and to bring it to clinical use.
The finalists will have the opportunity to meet the experts face-to-face, and have to prove the merit of their idea – and in the process receive valuable advice and guidance – an opportunity that money really cannot buy.
