ECR 2020 Opening Ceremony

Watch ECR 2020 Opening Ceremony


The upcoming European Congress of Radiology (ECR 2020), which took place July 15–19, 2020 in Vienna, enchanted the audience of its Opening Ceremony with a spectacular performance.

The ECR 2020 Opening Ceremony operated under the motto ‘Adagio’, lending this expression from the world of music to set an atmosphere of slow tempo, graceful movements and a leisurely manner. A dark-hued setting and a monochrome stage, interspersed with miniature elements in brilliant colours, provided an inimitable ambience and drew the focus on what lies at the heart of a successful medical meeting – top-notch science and the people behind it.

L’uomo vitruviano or the Vitruvian Man, one of the most iconic images in the world of medicine and healthcare, featured in the introduction to the European Society of Radiology’s annual meeting. Leonardo da Vinci’s famous drawing depicted a man in two superimposed positions, representing ideal human body proportions. The picture demonstrates the blend of mathematics and art and is considered a cornerstone of Leonardo’s attempts to relate man to nature. As such, it perfectly exemplifies the core of the art of medicine, which always strives to combine the latest research, the most novel technology and medicine’s commitment to humanism and care. A reference to this work of art and his creator, the epitome of universal genius, seems to be the appropriate aperture for a congress that prides itself on its innovative spirit and superior science.

The well-known Greek-German stage director Sarantos Georgios Zervoulakos was won over to orchestrate the ECR 2020 Opening Ceremony. As a traveller between worlds, as a former medical student who became an acclaimed stage director at a young age, cherishing both his Greek ancestry and the German-speaking regions where he realises most of his work, Zervoulakos was the perfect choice to create a conference opening that combines science and art in an inimitable way.

In good ECR tradition, music played a major part in the Opening Ceremony, featuring the popular Croatian pianist and singer-songwriter Lana Janjanin, who was supported by a big band orchestra that brightened everybody’s mood with their rhythm and swing.

ECR 2020’s second underlying motto, ‘Be a tree’, was also visible and perceptible throughout the Opening Ceremony.
