On the 11th of November, Enrico Migliorini (ESR 4) had the opportunity to present the AuDiET study, the centerpiece of his PhD research within MOSAICS, as invited guest speaker at the EURO-CIU Symposium in Rotterdam.
The conference was organized by CI users and targeted at CI users, covering a wide range of topics from the monetary cost-to-benefit ratio of CIs, rehabilitation practices, to the future of CI advocacy. It presented an excellent venue for Enrico to present his work to a different audience than the one usually found at scientific conferences: those attending the EURO-CIU Symposium had a personal stake in the improvements which AuDiET might bring. His presentation was a reminder of how the work of ESRs can be impactful on a personal level, and how much CI users rely on researchers to deliver innovation that can provide concrete health benefits. It was a deeply motivating experience to connect with people who may be impacted by the results of MOSAICS.

The MOSAICS team warmly thanks our partner EURO-CIU for organizing the conference, bringing together researchers and CI users, and reminding us of the privilege that it is to work towards helping this community.
