Online academy websiteIt is the second year that the Corona pandemic prevents us from meeting in person. But we are keen to continue our mission and to invite you to the TRI Online Academy and to the TRI meeting in 2022 in Vancouver

The TRI Online Academy will start with online seminars of important topics in tinnitus research.
Beginning in September 2021 there will be a tinnitus seminar every third Wednesday of the month. In order to make attendance around the globe possible, the seminar will be in the morning in the Americas, at lunch time in Europe and in the evening in Asia (sorry for our friends in Australia and New Zealand, you have to get up around midnight or watch the recordings the next day). Each seminar will consist of two lectures and will last approximately 60 minutes. The participation will be free for everybody and recordings of the events will be available on the TRI website.

The seminars will take place  “every third Wednesday of the month, 12:00 p.m. - 1.00 p.m. CEST”. The detailed program and information about how to participate will follow soon.
We are also very glad that we can already announce the date of the TRI Meeting 2022 in Vancouver. This meeting is planed June 28th till 30th 2022 as a face-to-face meeting.


Team New ZealandBy Dirk De Ridder

I had the unique privilege to accompany Matteo de Nora, the founder of the Tinnitus Research Initiative, our TRI, in accompanying him on a chase boat for some of Emirates Team New Zealand’s races in the America’s Cup. And while I was thrilled by the sailing, or should I rather say flying, of these vessels, I quickly realized that Emirates Team New Zealand was destined to win, and that this was very good news for the tinnitus community, for multiple reasons.

First, a little explanation. The America’s Cup, affectionally known as the Auld Mug, is the oldest international sporting trophy, dating back to 1851. It is the Formula 1 of sailing, held every 3-4 years, and this time in Auckland, New Zealand, because Emirates Team New Zealand won the previous edition in 2017. And, the winner dictates the rules and the design of the boats for the next challenge.

New Zealand is a very beautiful, tiny country, still covid-free, with 5 million people, very remote, more than 4000 km further than Australia (in a Eurocentric vision). It is known for Lord of the Rings, the Rainbow warrior bombing, its popular prime minister, multiculturalism (Maori and Pacific Islanders, European and Asian), gender equality, the kiwi, its stunning landscapes and sports, especially rugby with its famous All Blacks, and…sailing. Pro capita, New Zealand is one of the most successful Olympic medalist winners.

But why is it important that Emirates Team New Zealand won? Well it is for multiple reasons (read more...)

Keynote speaker is the world-renowed researcher in the field of auditory neuroscience,

Prof. Jos J. Eggermont, University of Calgary, CA.

The Conference will be a virtual event and everybody is welcome to attend.

Free Registration is necessary to get access to the Zoom links, and recorded lectures, if you are unable to attend when they occur.

It is planned to make the links of the recorded lectures available for a few weeks after the end of the conference!

TRI is delighted to announce that ESIT, the European School on Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research, a large EU research project on tinnitus with special focus on the training of 15 international PhD candidates in the field, coordinated by PD Dr Winfried Schlee (also TRI Scientific Coordinator), received the International Consortium on Personalised Medicine's (ICPerMed) recognition as a Best Practice Example in Personalised Medicine research and practice.

The application by PD Dr Schlee and their team ("International Tinnitus Research - Novel approaches in Personalised Medicine Research, Teaching and Treatment") has been selected for this award, together with other ground-breaking initiatives in the field. Furthermore, ESIT has been invited to present present their project at the next ICPerMed Conference, planned to take place on February 25 and 26, 2021, in Paris, France.
