Together with Amplifon Centre for Research and Studies (CRS), for example, it was possible to move forward with the Group’s most important initiative in the quest for increased public awareness: the Consensus Paper. Each year Amplifon selects a specific topic dedicated to a particular aspect of hearing problems which is further explored by the most important international experts on the subject. More in detail, these, Italian as well as foreign, experts, doctors and scholars help to compile a short paper, of scientific value, but written for the general public, in which the latest developments in research relating to the theme are discussed.
After the first edition in 2011, in which a team of Italian scholars discussed the impact of aging on hearing, in 2012 the horizons of the Consensus Paper were expanded to include European medical researchers which, thanks to the Amplifon’s coordination, gave life to a paper entitled “Hypoacusis in children: hearing to grow up”. Lastly, in 2013 the project assumed a truly worldwide dimension: translated in 4 languages and distributed throughout Europe and the United States, an American researcher (Prof. Frank Lin M.D. Ph.D. of Johns Hopkins University - U.S.A.) was also involved in the 2013 Consensus Paper which focused on the correlation between hearing loss and cognitive aging.
