European School for Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research (ESIT)

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!

The recent announcement of ESIT as a Success Story by the European Commission (see report below) has featured in several news media, especially also in Germany, from where ESIT is managed.

Several articles (in German) have been published, among them:

"Tinnitus Project at Regensburg receiving honour", Mittelbayerische Zeitung Regensburg.


"European award for Tinnitus project", Wochenblatt, Regensburg.


Furthermore, ESIT consortium partner Regensburg University and the Department for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy thereof, at medbo Bezirksklinikum Regensburg (Regensburg District Hospital), also reported on our success. Thank you very much!

Stefan Schoisswohl, ESIT PhD student at Regensburg University Hospital, presented some of his research findings in his speciality, TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation, a non-invasive form of brain stimulation) for tinnitus, at the 2019 nTMS Conference in Berlin, Germany!

A video recording of his presentation can be accessed here or by clicking on the image below.

We congratulate Stefan very much to the progress of his PhD and are excited to hear about more results!
