in-innovation challenge rules

in-innovation challenge has been conceived to increase the interest of attendees up to the very end of the in-congress.
After a preliminary selection by the Faculty and presentations of the speakers, all attendees will be asked to vote the best young innovative interventional communication, the best young innovative endovascular communication, the best innovative interventional paper 2022-23, the best innovative endovascular paper 2022-23 (exceptionally significant papers of 2021 may be considered).
The 4 best ”innovators” will be finally awarded (see summary table of in-innovation challenge).

Gianpaolo Carrafiello (Milano), Paolo Fonio (Torino) and Rita Golfieri or Cristina Mosconi (Bologna) will present the 2022-23 best innovative Italian interventional paper, while Michele Antonello (Padova), Mauro Gargiulo (Bologna) and Santi Trimarchi (Milano) the 2022-23 best innovative Italian endovascular paper. At the in-congress the two selection committes will have 90-120 seconds to explain the reasons for their choice (slide, with the title page of the selected paper published on PubMed). Subsequently the audience will vote for the “4 best innovators” and they will be each awarded. In this final part of the in-congress, the moderators will also be expected to rigorously oversee that presentation timings are respected (in-innovation challenge does not include discussions).


Participants will have the opportunity to dive into an innovative atmosphere made of images, lights, sounds, flavours which we hope will make the intervals between presentations more enjoyable (see in-entertainment organization).


At the end of the scientific program, the audience will vote for the best innovative young scientific communication for Interventional Radiology, the best innovative young scientific communication for Endovascular Therapy, the 2022-23 best innovative Italian paper for Interventional Radiology, the 2022-23 best innovative Italian paper for Endovascular Therapy, selected and proposed by 3 experts for each competition. The best 4 “innovators” will be awarded at the end of the in-congress (see in-innovation challenge rules and summary table of in-innovation challenge).


The in-scientific program has been planned to collect and spread the most recent innovations. Technological innovations, clinical innovations, novel applications of conventional techniques will be highlighted and discussed by a highly qualified faculty composed of the best Italian interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons. The program includes 14 scientific in-sessions, 6 in-key honorary lectures of European leaders in Interventional Radiology and Vascular Surgery, 2 industry focuses. The congress will last two days, the first dedicated to Interventional Radiology, the second to Endovascular Therapy (see in-session modalities, recommendations, for moderators/speakers/discussants and slides preparation).
