New research project

In order to assess the effects of the massive changes due to the corona crisis on working life and well-being, our department started a new research project "Working in times of crisis" in March 2020, which uses an online questionnaire to conduct repeated surveys. The results are to be used to develop recommendations for companies and employees to deal with situations of crisis.

New research project

In February 2018 our working group started with the project “Mental Health at the Workplace Hospital” (German: Seelische Gesundheit am Arbeitsplatz Krankenhaus, SEEGEN), funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). This collaborative project employs a two-stage process to develop and evaluate a complex intervention based on individual level and organizational level interventions. Collaborating institutions are: University hospital of Ulm (Project coordination), Heinrich-Heine University of Düsseldorf, University hospital of Heidelberg and University hospital of Tübingen.
