Periodic Reporting for period 1 - TIN-ACT (Research School for TINnitus Assessment, Causes and Treatments)
Reporting period: 2017-11-01 to 2019-10-31
The aim of the TIN-AT network is to understand the basic neural mechanisms of tinnitus, to improve the methods to measure tinnitus and ultimately aid the treatment tinnitus. The TIN-ACT network unites world-leading academic groups, research-intensive industrial partners, patient organizations and excellent young researchers. The goal of the network is to provide a robust multidisciplinary research and training oriented environment that is necessary to overcome the roadblocks that have prevented the development of tinnitus treatments.
To summarize, the management and training aspects of TIN-ACT have been satisfactorily implemented. The research that is currently carried out by the ESRs is yielding promising preliminary results. Several ESRs have already presented their work at international conferences and thus sharing the knowledge they have obtained in a multidisciplinary setting.
