A Nottingham charity helping people with hearing difficulties access the latest technological aids – which received a major grant from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership – will jointly hold a conference at the University of Nottingham’s Ningbo campus in China.

The conference focusing on children with cochlear implants (an electronic medical device implanted in the skull, which enhances hearing by replacing some of the function of the person’s damaged inner ear) will be held from May 20-21. The event is a collaboration between Advanced Bionics, Cochlear, Med-El, the Nottingham-Ningbo Evidence-Based Healthcare Centre (part of The University of Nottingham’s Ningbo campus) and The Ear Foundation – a Nottingham-based charity which specialises in helping children and adults access the latest hearing technologies.

In April 2015 The Ear Foundation opened its new facility, The Marjorie Sherman Centre, with the aim of helping the charity triple the number of people it can help (rising to 3,500 annually). The new £700,000 building at its Lenton headquarters received a £120,000 grant from D2N2’s Unlocking Investment for Growth (UI4G) programme.

The first day of the joint event in China, 9am to 4pm on Friday May 20, will be for medical professionals and will cost £50. The second day, Saturday May 21, will be aimed at families of children with cochlear implants and will be free for them to attend.
