From the start of 2016 – mid 2020, the European Glaucoma Research Training program (EGRET) and the European Glaucoma Research Training program-plus (EGRET-plus) together funded a total 25 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) across Europe to work on important questions related to glaucoma. The ESRs have acquired new, quantitative knowledge on glaucoma and the aging visual system, and have applied this to boost innovation in glaucoma care in both public and private sectors. This has been accomplished by extensive research in different disciplines: basic vision science, epidemiology, genetics, neuroimaging, eye-tracking and psychophysics.
This EGRET(+) leaflet presents the situation by the end of the two programs. It provides a short summary of at least one major output from each ESR and describes its potential future relevance to healthcare, science, society and industry.
