In an article for Austrian newspaper KURIER, our PI Janina Kehr spoke to Laila Docekal about the “Less is More?” research project. The article featured examples for research projects “made in Austria” with an international profile. (Published January, 3rd 2024)
“Less is More?” (LiM) is a project about taking stock, and actively engaging with the pharmaceutical substances we already use and how we use them. Rather than seeking the next “new thing”, LiM is using its three years of research and interdisciplinary engagements to understand what is actually happening on the ground – among prescribers and users, and within Vienna’s system of social and health services. Our results will directly feed into policy recommendations that are contextually adequate for Vienna and may act as a blueprint for Austria and beyond.
