Video post about current Status of TRI2020




Given the recent announcement by the WHO regarding the pandemic status of the COVID-19 outbreak and the recommendations from our local provincial government,

the TRI-2020 conference has been POSTPONED.

We have made this decision as the number of travel restrictions being imposed by a growing number of governments point to the need to ensure the safety and health for our global community – geographically and professionally.

TRI-2020 has not yet been rescheduled but we hope to make an announcement over the next week.

We join you in the disappointment of this announcement, but also assure you that we are actively working to establish a new date and schedule; so many people (from organizers, presenters, academia, researchers and industry) have put in so much effort to bring us to this point, so be assured that we want to deliver a rescheduled conference that showcases their efforts and contributions.

To everybody, stay safe and stay healthy – we will speak to you soon.

In case of enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us.



Raj Milan 2019A full time postdoctoral Research Fellow position is available at UCL Ear Institute (ass. Prof. Raj Shekhawat), to work on an Action on Hearing Loss funded project entitled “Does neuromodulation have what it takes to silence tinnitus for the long-term?”  The aim of this project is to optimise High Definition Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS) and its impact on Tinnitus perception & underlying brain networks. read more

In light of the global health crisis regarding Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, we want to inform you on our latest updates.

We are monitoring the current situation as it changes on a daily basis, staying up-to-date on any and all advisories from government authorities as well as announcements from the World Health Organization.

Currently, there is no plan to interrupt the conference schedule, as Canada is not under any travel advisory and there have only been a few isolated cases reported in the country.
TRI and the TRI-2020 organizers are weighing all options for the best course of action. An announcement will be made should a decision that best protects our participants’ interests and health concerns leads us to a change in conference status.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. 


Uniti Logo 2019 4cThe European Union is funding another project to research new treatment methods for chronic tinnitus. Project leader is PD. Dr. Winfried Schlee, staff member at the Tinnitus Centre and Centre for Neuromodulation of the University of Regensburg at the Bezirksklinikum.

The research project "UNITI" (Unification of Treatments and Interventions for Tinnitus Patients, EU-Action no. 848261) is the largest European clinical study on tinnitus to date. The aim is to find out which patient groups benefit most from which treatment methods. The data from the clinical trial will be combined with genetic data, medical and audiological studies and existing databases. A computer model will then recommend the best possible therapy.

UNITI (EU Action no. 848261) will run for three years and the multicentre study is scheduled to start in early 2021.

Study sites are Regensburg and Berlin (Germany), Leuven (Belgium), Granada (Spain) and Athens (Greece).

More information on UNITI will soon be available at https://uniti.tinnitusresearch.net
