Congratulations to everyone for this recent achievement and all the best of luck for all upcoming projects!

As the outbreak of the novel coronavirus and COVID-19 dominates the headlines and heavily preoccupies hearts and minds throughout Europe and worldwide, the entire ESIT consortium wishes to express its concern over the situation, and extends its best wishes of health and hope to everyone, directly or indirectly, affected.

Our thoughts are especially with our team members in Italy, Spain, France, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Germany, and all other countries currently facing adversity.

We hope for a swift passing of this crisis, with the least impact to global health and economy possible. Especially in this extraordinary situation, we realise how vital, strong and fruitful our international cooperation has been, is, and will continue to be! And indeed, how much we appreciate every aspect of it.

We continue to strive achieving ESIT's mission of training a future generation of outstanding tinnitus experts and thank everyone immensely who is supporting this mission under these extraordinary circumstances.

Stronger together!

The ESIT consortium.

We're excited to announce and to take part in the international Tinnitus Awareness Week 2020, from February 3 - 9, 2020!

As this year's focus, quite fittingly, will be specifically on tinnitus research, throughout the week, we will be presenting our ESIT PhD students' ongoing projects as well as promote tinnitus-related campaigns throughout Europe and beyond!

In order to stay up to date with all developments over the week, simply follow our social media channels on Twitter and Facebook, and especially the hashtag #TinnitusWeek that will be used jointly by all campaigners, among them ESIT consortium members the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) and Tinnitus Hub, and many more!

We congratulate all organaisers on their immense preparation efforts for this week of outreach, and are certain of its beneficial success for tinnitus research and tinnitus patients alike, by together raising awareness for this common, yet insufficiently understood condition!
