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.


Upcoming Events:


ECRO is starting 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.


Rosemarie Pangborn Sensory Science Scholarship: One $15,000 Sensory Science Scholarship will be awarded for the 2018-2019 academic year to support a Ph.D. student who intends to teach and conduct research in the area of sensory science at the University level. This scholarship is awarded in honor of the memory of Professor Rose Marie Pangborn, who initiated the scholarship fund to encourage the education of Sensory Scientists intending to pursue academic careers.
