CONNECT first workshop

Co-creation workshop for communication and use of medical research results.

Participation in the development of research projects

In November, the first co-creation workshop of the CONNECT project took place in cooperation between the MedUni Graz (Selma Mautner), the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Lung Vascular Research - Grazyna Kwapiszewska) and the Copenhagen Business School (Marion Pötz). The CONNECT project is developing a new process that enables different users of medical research results to participate in the development of new research projects in an innovative and open manner and at eye level.

The Co-Creation Workshop was a first step towards achieving this goal: Researchers, doctors from various disciplines, patients, relatives, therapists and nurses have jointly developed opportunities to communicate the latest results from fibrosis research in such a way that users can contribute their experiences based on them. The type of communication developed in the workshop will subsequently be used in a crowdsourcing process in order to give a voice to many patients suffering from fibrosis or fibrosis and their families, doctors, therapists or nurses. Building on this it is possible to participate in a process for the joint development of new research projects in the field of fibrosis diseases.
