ESIT Kick-Off (European School on Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research)

ESIT — Landmark Partnership Between the Patient and Research Community

Hi all,

As associated partners of ESIT (European School on Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research), we recently had the opportunity to take part in its kick-off meeting in the beautiful Herrsching am Ammersee, near Munich. Steve took a flight out and met with a large selection of the participants.

Each member of the group introduced themselves in a brief 3 minute spot and gave a little information on their role within the project. This was an excellent opportunity for the group to get to know one another. We also got a rundown of the 15 PhD’s, the recruitment processes and had time to talk to one another, and of course have some fine German beer by the lake.
