cONNECT

CONNECT is a collaborative project between the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Lung Vascular Research, the Medical University of Graz and the Copenhagen Business School. The project aims to enable different users of medical research results to participate in the development of new research projects in an innovative and open manner. The process was started with a co-creation workshop in November 2019 where various user groups such as patients, relatives, therapists and nurses contributed with their experimental knowledge to the research expertise of molecular biologists and clinical scientists. Different prototypes were created together that will serve as templates to “translate” current research literature regarding fibrosis research. Parallel to prototype design, a crowdsourcing platform is implemented on which the "translated" research literature can be accessed by anyone interested. The transfer of knowledge is characterized by transparency and the use of a simplified language, and thus allows the participation of different user groups in research. The crowdsourcing process is expected to identify persons who are interested to contribute their experiential knowledge in new research projects.
