Digital EUHA Congress

The Digital EUHA Congress was held from 9 October to 8 November 2020. The EUHA digital lectures and the Digital Future Friday presentations are available here:

64th International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians:
Intelligent hearing and securing the future

Some 8,000 delegates from 99 countries participated in the 64th International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians. Organised by the European Union of Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA), this major event was held in Nuremberg, Germany, between 16 and 18 October 2019. Attendance figures make the convention the largest specialist event of its kind in the world. The conference schedule included 22 lectures, six tutorials as well as a special programme for Future Friday. A total of 29 lecturers from Germany and abroad presented the latest knowledge on digitisation, artificial intelligence, and new sensor technologies.

Those who did not manage to attend the Congress, or wish to recap in peace and quiet what they heard, will be able to watch all the presentations online at – this is also an achievement of digitisation!

The video recordings (videos) of the lectures presented at the 64nd International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians held in Nuremberg between 16 and 18 Oct 2019 are now online (original-language versions).
