Research Awards

Burkhard Dick, ESCRS Secretary, gives an overview of the funding streams ESCRS provides for research and looks at what's coming in the near future.

The current awards are for clinical research, pioneering studies, open access datasets and systematic reviews.


ESCRS Registries house a total of more than 4 million records and represent one of the few centralized data repositories for ophthalmic surgery in Europe.

The oldest, EUREQUO, collects cataract and refractive surgery data. The ECCTR database is an EU registry for corneal transplantations. The newest, EuReCCA, was established to collect data on pediatric cataract surgery.
