European School for Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research (ESIT)

ESIT PhD student Matheus Lourenco, researching at Maastricht University and KU Leuven, recently contributed to an article on tinnitus for the Dutch weekly magazine Libelle.

We are very proud of Matheus for promoting his highly relevant psychological and psychotherapeutical research on tinnitus in this accessible format and thank Libelle for their interest in this topic that is of daily relevance to millions of people throughout Europe, either being affected by tinnitus themselves of through a family member or friend. Dank u wel!

Recently, the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet published an article on tinnitus, tinnitus treatment and research, featuring ESIT PhD student Natalia Trpchevska at Karolinska Institutet Stockholm and ESIT supervisor Prof Berthold Langguth at Regensburg University.

We are very proud of Natalia for presenting her outstanding work on the genetics of tinnitus already internationally and thank Prof Langguth for supporting the article with his well-known expertise!

We were delighted to organise and to welcome the ESIT PhD students for the 4th ESIT Training School, which has taken place from September 16 - 20, 2019, at the Clinic and Policlinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy of the University of Regensburg, medbo. Many thanks to them for their outstanding support and offering us a well-suited, friendly environment for our gathering.

This, once again, very engaging, insightful and, like the ESIT consortium itself, international training was made up of sessions covering, among many other things, personal effectiveness, personal and career development, entrepreneurship, Wikipedia writing, intellectual property, open data and open science, and working with the ESIT scientific database. We are indebted to the many internal and external trainers for their invaluable support and grateful for contributing their time and expertise to our event!

According to the ESIT grant proposal and grant agreement, this has already been the last ESIT Training School, with previous ones having taken place at Warsaw, Nottingham and Milan. However, many other training opportunities are still coming up and will be reported here. We are indeed very much looking forward!
