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.

Abstract Book Vancouver 2020 v5 final 1
We are very pleased that, despite the cancellation of the TRI 2020 Tinnitus Conference in Vancouver, CA, our call to publish an abstract book of the conference was accepted by many authors and that we are now able to present abstracts relating to more than 80 research projects on tinnitus.

This abstract book provides an impressive overview about the quality and diversity of the tinnitus research field. And this abstract book is the best proof, that tinnitus research is alive and more active than ever before.

Take care of yourself and your loved ones and stay healthy!

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.



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.
