The last days, our initial Kickoff-Meeting of the ESIT Project took place in Herrsching am Ammersee near Munich.
We had a great time conferencing in our beautiful venue with direct view on the Ammersee lake.

Today it is time for the presentation of our next Industry Partner: Sivantos Group in Germany.

Tinnitus usually goes hand in hand with hearing loss. This is why, for many years, Sivantos has developed and integrated specific therapies.
Sivantos is one of the world’s top manufacturers of hearing aids. In fact, they can be proud to develop and manufacture one out of every four hearing aids being used worldwide. ´
The company offers hearing aids from different brands as well as complementary accessories, fitting software, smartphone apps and diagnostics workflow solutions are also part of its portfolio.

One of our students will be able to do a secondment discovering Sivantos from the inside.

„ESIT will take the science of understanding tinnitus and developing effective solutions for its treatment to a new level. Sivantos is looking forward to playing a supporting role in this international research project to improve the quality of life of people living with tinnitus”, says Ronny Hannemann, Audiology engineer at Sivantos.
We are glad to have you on board!

 

We would like to better present our partners in European School on Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research by providing some information about their contribution and hearing some of their voices towards Tinnitus and the ESIT project.
Today we start with one of our industry partners.

Bee Group

BEE Group AG, situated in Switzerland, is home to leading companies in the emerging field of advanced uses of the electroencephalogram (EEG) for medical applications. They contribute to diagnostics by discovering, approving and validating EEG biomarkers, also called neuromarkers, as well as tools to utilize the so-won information. They are developing clinical devices and software for neurofeedback for therapy measures.

Our contact, Mr. Bernhard Wandernoth, about the participation on ESIT:
"We are excited to contribute our 32 years of clinical and technological experience in neurofeedback, as well as more than ten years in EEG-biomarker research, to this exciting programme! This research builds on years of clinical experience and a number of prior reports on neurofeedback for tinnitus.”

We are looking forward to a successful collaboration!

We are proud to announce our first job offers for PhD positions are online!

Join our team at the GENyO Lab Granada to learn the latest knowledge on genetics and investigate variants in cases with Menière's Disease that have very severe tinnitus.

Or contribute to the goal of the Ongoing Brain Oscillation and Behaviour Lab in Salzburg to determine tES parameters that modulate auditory cortical activity reliably on an individual
level.

In Regensburg we offer two positions giving you the chance to support our Tinnitus Lab using your skills in large-scale data analysis with the goal of identifying indicators for treatment success and risk factors at subject-level or
carrying out empirical studies on chronic tinnitus patients, combining auditory stimulation with repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation.
