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!

ECR 2021 Onsite

Against the initial assumptions that the pandemic would be largely under control again by 2021, recent developments and the continuing uncertainty regarding the upcoming months have shown that, despite all the hard work and countless attempts by the ECR, unfortunately, it will not be possible to hold ECR 2021 in the usual manner.

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 ECR 2021, 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.

Virtual Exhibition at ECR 2021

We are glad to inform you that there will be a virtual exhibition for ECR 2021 from March 3-7, 2021. All exhibitors from ECR 2020 are invited to virtually present their company at our virtual exhibition.

The exhibition platform will again be hosted by Expo-IP, which most of you are familiar with from our online event in July 2020. You will find our platform refined with upgrades and some significant changes to the system itself as well as participant’s usage. Among the new functions are advanced statistics, integrated lead generation and only one registration and login for all ECR 2021 platforms (ESR Connect for the ECR 2021 scientific/educational programme & the ECR 2021 Virtual Expo). We have also restructured the booth building process, all you have to do is fill in a form with your company’s details, upload your company logo and other optional graphics. There is no backend work required.

Beyond that our virtual exhibition will also feature a matching tool. After filling out a short survey, delegates will receive an overview of the exhibitors best matching their interests, to make these companies instantly accessible.

All exhibitors from 2020 have already received further detailed information by email. Please contact us at in case you have not received the respective information.

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.
