ECR 2021 Online

Attendees of ECR 2021 Online can expect one of the biggest online programmes in radiology ever, featuring state-of-the-art science, education and research presented by medical imaging professionals from across the world. With at least four parallel live streams envisioned, the congress will offer a mixture of live, pre-recorded and interactive sessions covering a fantastic variety of topics and subspecialities. Each day’s programme will be complimented with a variety of special early-bird and night-owl sessions.

ECR 2021 is working on expanding its opportunities for industry partners. Alongside a fully integrated industry programme featuring an array of industry symposia, we want to provide companies with the opportunity to interact with attendees via new and innovative networking solutions. Additionally, we are evaluating different opportunities for a virtual presence of exhibitors at the ECR 2021 Online.

Pop-Up World Tour

When you cannot come to ECR. We will bring ECR to you.

ECR 2021 will feature a brand-new congress concept – the Pop-Up World Tour. This unique format will see sub-events hosted by the ESR’s closest institutional and industry partners in a variety of locations across the world. National onsite attendance at these events will be possible for specially invited guests and speakers. The Pop-Up World Tour will see a unique programme in each location, which will be streamed live to congress attendees, making ECR 2021 a truly global event.

For the moment, slots for the Pop-Up World Tour will be provided upon invitation only to Supporting Members of the European Society of Radiology. All invited industry partners have already been contacted or will be contacted soon!

Nevertheless, in case we find that we are able to accommodate more than the invited ESR institutional and industry partners, we will be pleased to receive your expression of interest in the events. Please provide this by filling in this online form by January 13, 2021. In the course of the planning process, we will contact you with an update on whether we can offer you the opportunity to be a part of this unique congress feature and will, at that time, provide you with further details. Please note, that the assignment of slots depends on the available capacities of each event and decisions in this regard are the sole responsibility of the ECR.

ECR 2021 Onsite

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Austrian authorities are currently unable to approve plans for an onsite congress in Vienna for ECR 2021. Your safety is the ESR’s first priority and we will strictly follow all decisions and recommendations by local authorities. Therefore, the society is currently planning ECR 2021 as an entirely online event.

Despite this current plan, some form of on-site activity may still be possible for ECR 2021. Regulations are changing rapidly, and we are in close and constant cooperation with the Austrian authorities, monitoring events in Vienna carefully. Should there be any developments that offer new opportunities for next year’s congress, we will adapt accordingly.

Please also watch the statement by ESR President Professor Michael Fuchsjäger on the current status of ECR 2021.

The ECR 2021 will, therefore, be unable to host an on-site technical exhibition in the same manner as it has done in the years before. Still, in case the opportunity arises for the ECR to organise any kind of on-site event, we will certainly also consider the representation of our esteemed industry partners and exhibitors. We will do our utmost to inform you at the earliest possible time in case we can confirm anything specific related to exhibitor’s presence in Vienna.

In case you represent a company that did not plan to exhibit at the on-site ECR 2020 and would be interested in being part of the ECR 2021 experience, please contact us at and we will be pleased to provide you with the respective information and opportunities (online and on-site) as soon as they are available.
