Bridging Academia, Industy, Medicine & Society

While tinnitus is a common symptom, current-day treatments reduce the impact than specifically address the percept itself. Globally, tinnitus sufferers demand a permanent solution to this problem. Although market research demonstrates a strong commercial opportunity, the amount of scientific research and financial investment is small compared to other chronic health conditions. TRI 2023 aims to bring together world-class scientists, industrialists, clinicians and policymakers, patients and caregivers to address these impending issues thereby seeking to bridge the gap between academia, industry, medicine & society (AIMS). We aspire to join hands with experts from emerging scientific fields such as big data science, personalized medicine, neuroinflammation, genetics etc. who can give us insights about their successful translations from bench to bedside. Through this meeting we intend to open new avenues of research, clinical practices, and patient engagement strategies in tinnitus, setting us on a path of disruptive innovation. This led us to title the conference Engineering the future of tinnitus: Bridging Academia, Industry, Medicine & Society.

Sven Vanneste & Anusha Mohan

TRI 2023 will be held at the Trinity Business School in Trinity College Dublin, the oldest academic institution in Ireland. Established in 1592 as the College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity of Queen Elizabeth in the heart of Dublin city, Trinity College draws more than 400 years of history and houses some of the oldest relics in the world. Complementing its glory is Dublin city itself, weaving centuries of culture and tradition between the modern folds of the third millennium. This year at TRI 2023, along with our vision to #BridgingAIMS, we are honoured to give our delegates a taste of the infamous Irish culture and tradition through our social events.

June 6-9

Social Program

Welcome Reception (June 6, 19:00 onwards): A reception will be hosted on the evening of the 6th June at the historical Long Room or the Old Library of Trinity College Dublin. Built between 1712 and 1732, the Long Room holds 200,000 of the Library’s oldest books. By 1801, the Library had been given the right to claim a free copy of every book published in Britain and Ireland. The Library also houses the marble busts of some of the world’s greatest philosophers and writers connected to Trinity College. The reception will be a social mixer before the start of the main conference giving delegates an informal setting to socialise and network. Please note that although attendance to the reception is free of cost, the number of guests is limited to 200, so those willing to join the reception are requested to indicate their presence during the time of registration.

Meet the Experts – Early Career Researchers Social Mixer (June 7, 18:00 – 19:00 pm): This is a social mixer for early and expert researchers to network. This is an excellent opportunity for early career researchers (PhD students and Postdocs) to not only know their peers in the field but also meet the senior researchers to discuss their research, seek advice, new projects, potential collaborations and jobs. The experts can also advice on experimental design, statistical analysis, clinical trials and other day-to-day questions that can be difficult to grasp through just research papers. This is an opportunity for budding researchers to build their professional network and grow their peer and expert networks. This free mixer will be organised at the main venue of the conference – Trinity Business School. Please note that early career researchers and experts are requested to indicate their participation during registration.

Irish night (June 8, 20:00 onwards): An informal dinner will be organised for all delegates on the evening of the 8th June at the 18th century Trinity College Dining Hall. Built between 1760 and 1770, with high ceilings and timber panelled walls, the Dining Hall provides an ambient yet vibrant atmosphere for a night of traditional Irish music and dancing. During this evening we aim to provide our guests an experience of the rich Irish culture – something to remember for the years to come! The dinner involves an informal evening of Irish food, music, drinks and dance! We request delegates to please indicate their attendance during registration along with an additional payment of 80 euros.
