We congratulate our dear colleague Raj very much to this opportrunity and are certain that everyone attending will derive great benefit!

With great happiness and gratitude, we are able to share the news that ESIT, and its mobile app for tinnitus assessment and treatment, have been nominated on the European Union Innovation Radar, a tool to map innovative developments in the European Research Area, coming out of EU-funded projects!

This opportunity increases the visibility of ESIT and its research and innovation potential, and we're already excited about all further developments and partnerships that might derive.

Our immense thanks are due for all members of staff who made this possible, and the incredible support of our Project Officer at the European Commission, and their team!

Hyperacusis (an overly sensitive perception of sound, often associated with distress) is a hearing condition connected to tinnitus.

A recently published new article, "Association between Hyperacusis and Tinnitus", with support of ESIT supervisors Christopher Cederroth, Antonio Lopez-Escamez, Derek Hoare, Barbara Canlon and Silvano Gallus, as well as training partner Jan Bulla, has shed new light on this important topic.

Congratulations to all authors to this paper, making it the 23rd ESIT publication overall!
