Introduction

About the Wiener Werkstaette for Suicide Research and Our Goals

Since its foundation, the Wiener Werkstaette for Suicide Research has been an international, interuniversity as well as interdisciplinary, consortium of researchers devoted to fostering research collaboration and progress in suicidology. We intend to facilitate networking between research and 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 national prevention programs. As a member of the Austrian Society for Suicide Prevention and the German Society for Suicide Prevention, the Wiener Werkstaette for Suicide Research acts as a dynamic research group located in the German-speaking part of Central Europe.
