Introduction

About the Wiener Werkstaette for Suicide Research and Our Goals

Since its foundation, the Wiener Werkstaette for Suicide Research has been an interdisciplinary group of researchers devoted to fostering research collaboration and progress in suicidology. We intend to facilitate networking between suicide research and prevention practice, as well as research-based cooperation with universities, and the mentoring of young scientists. To intensify our network, we cooperate with colleagues, both nationally and internationally, in order to promote suicide research and to implement research findings in prevention programs. We are in collaboration with the Austrian Association for Suicide Prevention (ÖGS), the German Association for Suicide Prevention (DGS) and the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP), and several other national and international organizations in the field. As evidenced by the its research output, the Wiener Werkstaette for Suicide Research is currently one of the most active suicide prevention research groups in Europe.
