ResearchDialogue - Shaping Health Together

The ResearchDialogue Portal provides the public with comprehensible information on research projects and studies. It contains descriptions and explanations that help people to understand our research. We would like to use this portal to enter into a dialogue with our citizens and patients. The portal is part of our citizen science approach that is important to us in order to receive feedback from the public.
