Welcome to ECRO
The European Chemoreception Research Organization (ECRO) promotes fundamental and applied research in chemosensory science especially olfaction and taste in
vertebrates and invertebrates. ECRO organizes an annual congress to that end. ECRO is financed by individual member subscriptions and by donations from industry and research institutions. To
facilitate participation of younger scientists ECRO supports travel grants for students. We invite your applications for grants. ECRO also financially supports the organization of scientific
meetings in the field of Olfaction and Taste.
ECRO sincerely hopes that all ECRO members are safe and healthy despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Our hearts go out to those who go through difficult times or have been affected by the virus, we hope for their swift and full recovery.
ECRO XXX Meeting, Dresden, 17. - 18. September 2020
Due to the ongoing concerns about COVID-19, the current social distancing guidelines, and the wish of the ECRO board to protect the health and safety of our attendees, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the ECRO2020 in-person meeting that was scheduled to take place September 16-19 in Dresden, Germany.
We are now happy to inform you that a limited online ECRO meeting will be held on September 17 and 18, 2020. Please stay tuned for further details on the program and organization. We are looking forward to meeting with you during these difficult times.

New Editor-in-Chief of Chemical Senses: Oxford University Press (OUP) is delighted to introduce Steven D. Munger, Ph.D. as the new Editor-in-Chief of Chemical Senses, taking over from Wolfgang Meyerhof after 11 exceptional years in the role. As the new Editor-in-Chief, Steven will build on this legacy, maintaining links with ECRO, AChemS, JASTS, AACSS and KSCSIB, and will launch several new initiatives to help the journal become more integrated in the chemosensory community. Among these include ensuring the Editorial Board continuously reflects the diversity of our field, and working on strategies for post-publication publicity to better communicate the exciting work published in Chemical Senses with the broader scientific community.
Global Consortium for Chemosensory Research (GCCR): A growing number of reports show that significant numbers of patients with diagnosed COVID-19 developed smell and taste symptoms, often in the absence of other symptoms. To understand reports of chemosensory issues related to COVID-19, the Global Consortium for Chemosensory Research (GCCR) has been created.
Please follow this link to learn more about the GCCR initiative.
Outreach: ECRO has started a public information initiative to communicate knowledge regarding taste and smell to patients as well as industry. New links/connections will be initially shared on our Home page and will eventually move to the Tab Outreach. Send information to: email@example.com
