ECRO was inaugurated in 1970 at the International Summer Course on Odour Perception, in Utrecht, with the aim of promoting and coordinating research in chemoreception.
It was officially registered in Paris in 1971 and although it began as a European venture, it now has members from outside Europe and sees its function as world-wide. The goal of ECRO is to promote fundamental and applied research in chemosensory sciences, especially olfaction and taste. ECRO is financed by individual member subscriptions and by donations from industry and research institutions.Since 1978 ECRO has been affiliated with UNESCO.
ECRO activities comprise scientific meetings, and summer schools. To facilitate participation of younger scientists ECRO supports travel grants for students. ECRO encourages members to organize minisymposia on specific topics for brainstorming discussions.
