“Tell us!” is sponsored by the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG) and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology (LBI Trauma).
No! This project is a research project without any company sponsorship. The Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft is an independent research institution with the goal of performing research with and for people.
We take privacy very seriously. The data contained in your profile and your contributions will be treated in accordance with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Other participants in the project will not be able to view your data at any time. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Upon request, we can delete your data.
After the end of the submission phase, your research questions will be anonymously evaluated by the “crowd,” on the one hand, and by experts in the field of traumatology on the other. This is how we arrive at a joint assessment of the research questions. The research questions will also be provided anonymously to researchers from the field of traumatology. You have an opportunity to be notified if your question is selected.
Yes; during the second phase of the project, in the evaluation phase, other participants can see your anonymized submission. The questions you submit can no longer be traced back to you. Naturally, all personal data are subject to privacy protections.
“Tell us!” will publish a report in summary form and make this available on our website: tell-us.online.
The Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG) is an independent research institution with thematic priorities in the fields of medicine, the life sciences, the humanities, the social sciences and cultural studies; it systematically initiates new research topics in Austria.
Together with partners in academia and practice, the LBG currently operates 18 Ludwig Boltzmann Institutes and develops and tests new forms of cooperation between science and non-scientific stakeholders such as enterprises, the public sector and civil society.
Socially relevant challenges toward the solution of which research can make a contribution are identified and incorporated at an early stage. In 2016, the LBG Open Innovation in Science Center was created to tap the potential of Open Innovation for science.
The Research Center for Traumatology at Allgemeine Unfallversicherungsanstalt [General Accident Insurance Institution] (AUVA) includes both the Research Institute for Traumatology of AUVA, joined in 1980 by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology (Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft); since 1998, it has also had the support of Trauma Care Consult. In 2006, the Austrian Cluster for Tissue Regeneration was founded by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Experimental and Clinical Traumatology and expanded in 2013/2014 (see also our enclosed information brochures).
The research center is housed in the Lorenz Böhler Accident Hospital in Vienna. In 2003, a branch center dedicated to the extraction and research of human adult stem cells was set up in Linz. This is operated in cooperation with the blood bank of the Upper Austrian Red Cross.
Their goal: The research center’s goal is to improve diagnostic and therapeutic measures in trauma surgery and intensive care. This is pursued, on the one hand, through own research projects in the field of tissue regeneration (Prof. Dr. Heinz Redl) and polytrauma/shock/sepsis (PD Dr. Marcin Osuchowski), but also by evaluating international research findings and their practical application within the AUVA through clinical studies and training courses.The research center is also involved in numerous Austrian and European research projects. Thanks to interdisciplinary partnerships, the institute is involved in many fields of human medicine.
No. Where submissions of your research questions are concerned, we are interested in articulating research questions. This step is a particularly important part of the scientific research process.
The “Tell us!” project is funded by the Austrian National Foundation for Research, Technology and Development.
The goal of “Tell us!” is to generate relevant research questions for the research field of traumatology. The LBG will transform the research questions by following two strategies:
1) Visualize all anonymized research questions via OKMaps to strengthen worldwide collaboration
2) Systematically construct and fund interdisciplinary research projects in order to address identified innovative research questions
Exactly! Once they are evaluated, the anonymized results will be made publicly available. This way, researchers in the field of traumatology can incorporate and investigate these results in their work.
Anyone with an interest is welcome to participate in the “Tell us!” initiative. Everyone is invited to participate, no matter whether they have suffered a trauma or are family members, caregivers, physicians or therapists – and regardless of the country in which they live or work. Participation is open to all natural persons who have reached the age of 18 at the time of registration (or the age attesting to a participant's full legal responsibility under the laws of the country involved).
Unfortunately not. Participation in “Tell us!” is possible exclusively via an Internet-enabled device and with a registered profile on the platform. Submissions in the post will not be accepted.
We are looking for research questions that build on your experience. This includes, for instance, experience in clinical practice, your own experience as a patient and/or providing patient support as a caregiver or nurse. Your research questions are extremely valuable – they provide researchers an opportunity to broach new questions with relevance for clinical practice issues and to answer these questions scientifically.
Conventional platforms and forums are used to provide an opportunity for interaction among patients and experts, or else they serve as web portals where people can go to obtain medical advice. In our case, we systematically pursue the identification of unresolved questions by sufferers, practitioners, experts and those with an interest in accidental injuries. These questions are collected and imported into the research process. The overall goal is to generate new, socially useful points of departure for research projects.
“Tell us!” does not provide any assistance or direct answers to your questions. Instead, the purpose of the project is to generate research questions in a first step, and then to provide these questions to researchers so that your questions can be answered.
Not really. Our goal is for you to contribute your research questions. This should be done on the basis of your own personal experience. This includes your experience in clinical practice, your own experience as a patient and/or your experience providing support as a caregiver or nurse.
A contribution always consists of submission of what you consider to be a relevant research question on accidental injuries, together with some related information on the background of the research question submitted, as well as about your person.
“Tell us!” is an international project. We search worldwide for interesting research questions around accidental injuries. The platform is offered in German and English.
Contributions to “Tell us!” can be submitted in two languages: English & German
Because you have something to say and you know something that researchers potentially do not know. You have knowledge based on your experience in the field of accidental injuries. Often, however, this kind of knowledge is not factored into research. “Tell us!” gives you an opportunity to help shape the development of research questions; this gives research a decisive impetus for your future research activities. Your knowledge is important and means a great deal to us.
We want to incorporate knowledge based on your experience into research, to generate new points of departure for research projects that will be of particular benefit to society. This will make it possible to improve the diagnosis and treatment of accidental injuries in the future.
“Tell us!” gives you an opportunity to draw upon your clinical experience in the field of accidental injury as an expert, or your own experience as a patient or relative, and contribute this to research. Your contribution helps researchers ask the right questions, thus improving our medical system in the long term.
Why did the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft launch “Tell us!”?
Scientists need new forms of collaboration and new methods of data generation and analysis to solve the problems of society and generate genuinely new insights. Since 2014, the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft has been making a pioneering contribution in Europe with its “Tell us!” initiative. The goal is to involve patients, physicians, therapists, caregivers and family members in the research process in a new way.
The systematic integration of different knowledge providers for the identification of unresolved questions in the field of research on accidental injuries (traumatology). This is not a platform for the answering of medical questions; no diagnoses are made, and no medical recommendations are given.
