The Einthoven dissertation prize is a joint initiative of the NLHI and the Netherlands Society for Cardiology (NVVC). The prize is named after one of the Dutch Nobel Prize winners, Willem Einthoven, founder of the ECG. It is an annual contest for the best cardiovascular thesis in the Netherlands. This prize is very popular and prestigious.

The jury consists of board members of the NLHI and NVVC who invite the three best applicants to present their work during the Annual Translational Cardiovascular Research Meeting. The public of the meeting has the final vote. Prizes consist of a personal budget for the 3 winners (3.000 – 2.000 – 1.000 Euro’s).

Calls opens in October and has a deadline on December 31st.
