European School for Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research (ESIT)

During the Third ESIT Training School in Milan (see below), ESIT Training Coordinator Dr Derek Hoare (University of Nottinham, UK) and ESIT PhD supervisor Dr Rilana Cima (Universiteit Maastricht) had the great opportunity to talk to Hazel Goedhart, Director and Chief Strategist of the international patient non-profit organisation Tinnitus Hub about ESIT and the project state and progress.

 

 

This video was produced by Tinnitus Hub, a volunteer-based organisation run for tinnitus patients by tinnitus patients, and an official partner in the ESIT research consortium. Tinnitus Hub manages Tinnitus Talk, the largest online support community for tinnitus patients.

We'd like to thank Hazel Goedhart and Tinnitus Hub very much for their time and effort put into this interview!

On April 12, 2019, Jorge Simoes and Stefan Schoisswohl, ESIT PhD researchers at the University of Regensburg, participated in Regensburg's annual Science Night "Nacht.Schafft.Wissen 2019". This event aims to inform the interested public about recent developments in science and technology in an accessible, often interactive, format and at an exceptional time (late evening and night).

This was a great opportunity to showcase the ESIT project with its interdisciplinary and international approach to tinnitus research and to explain its aims and ambitions to a wide audience!

 

    

 

The Third ESIT Training School took place at Istituto Mario Negri in Milan from March 25, 2019 to March 29, 2019.

Again, this was a time of fruitful learning, exhange and conversation for our PhD students, their supervisors and all others involved.

Furthermore, this reunion served as the Midterm Meeting with the responsible EU Project Officer Michaela Bitzakis and the External Expert Helena Caria, who we'd like to thank especially for having joined us and contributing their valuable insights and feedback and sharing their experience. A Supervisory Board Meeting was also held.

We'd like to thank the Mario Negri Institute for their hospitality and for everybody having committed impressive efforts!

We are already very much looking forward to the 4th ESIT Training School in September!

 


 

The Second ESIT Training School was held from September 10, 2018 to September 15, 2018 at the University of Nottingham, UK, with an additional event at the 2018 British Tinnitus Association (BTA) Conference in Birmingham where the ESIT students were able to present their projects and recent findings at a well-attended poster session.

This was an immensely valuable and insightful experience for everybody involved and we would like to thank all ESRs, trainers, the University of Nottingham and the BTA for making this training possible.

Koningsdag is the national holiday in the kingdom of Netherlands. On this day, the University of Groningen started the "Knowledge is King"-day. Jos√© Lopez-Santacruz, our ESIT PhD at Groningen University, participated in an interesting project of the  Hoormij to make tinnitus sound hearable for kids. Check out this link to hear different tinnitus sounds and to experience how people with a cochlear implant hear things.
