This is how you may support our research

1.
Survey in English and German ready to
launch on
SurveyMonkey

in two weeks

(other languages on demand)

2.

Organizations to communicate link


and support survey via training website


and/or LMS. The more data, the better!

3.

You will get a link + a text to communicate
