Future Hearing: Under this motto, the Auditory Valley research and development network is bundling many kinds of hearing expertise. This magazine "CLICK" will give you a regular insight into the fascinating and varied world of auditory research.
The "Sonic Boom" section in this issue looks at the new degree program in Physics, Technology and Medicine at the University of Oldenburg as well as the 19th Hannover Cochlear Implant Congress and Inner Ear Biology 2017 meeting held in Hannover. Under "Directional Filters," we present the BMBF "Audio-PSS" project, which is developing product service systems for tele-audiology. A colorful mix of research news and event reports are presented in our "Pink Noise" section. Once again, this issue will also focus on the developments and results obtained by Hearing4all, the cluster of excellence at Auditory Valley. We are particularly pleased to announce that the University of Oldenburg, Hannover Medical School, and Leibniz University of Hannover have taken the first hurdles as part of the Excellence Strategy, the successor program to the Federal/State Excellence Initiative, and are now working hard on completing the full application for the Cluster's next phase.
Also in this issue we‘re putting a special focus on the developments and results of Hearing4all, the Cluster of Excellence in the Auditory Valley.
We hope you’ll enjoy reading this issue of "Click"!
