ESR President lays out clear vision for ECR 2020



It is a well-established tradition that on the final day of the congress, ECR Today looks ahead to next year’s ECR. We therefore spoke with Professor Boris Brkljačić from Zagreb, Croatia, the incoming ESR President, who is in charge of ECR 2020. He shared with us some of his ideas and plans for the next European Congress of Radiology.

Congress Poster

Every year the ESR Office suggests several congress poster concepts, created by professional designers, to the Congress President and PPC members, which then select their favourite. The poster you can see here was the best of the proposed options.

It resembles Rembrandt’s artwork, with sharp light and dark contrast, and is in good accordance with the slogan for ECR 2020: ‘A Clear Vision for Radiology’. The small floating object represents artificial intelligence, which will be an important topic at the congress, and the names of the ECR 2020 ‘ESR meets’ countries are visible at the bottom of the poster. The 2020 poster contains fewer colours and illustrations compared to the 2019 poster and is concordant with the visual style of the ESR’s main scientific publication, the journal European Radiology.
