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.
We sincerely hope that all ECRO members are safe and healthy despite the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Our heart goes out to those who go through difficult times or have been affected by the virus, and we hope for their swift and full recovery.
• ECRO XXX Meeting, Dresden16 - 19 September 2020
The ECRO board, together with the meeting organizers, is closely monitoring the current and expected development of the COVID-19 situation and evaluating whether it will be possible or not to host the ECRO meeting as planned. As a measure of precaution under the current circumstances, ECRO decided to postpone the opening of Registration and Abstract submission from April 1 to July 01, 2020. The ECRO board will review its decision at regular monthly intervals; the next update regarding the ECRO XXX Meeting will be given on May 02, 2020.
• 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.

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
