SwiSCI functions as a research platform for national and international project collaborations.
The objective of this platform is to build a closer connection with researchers who would like to conduct projects within the SwiSCI spectrum of topics. In order to profoundly examine specific issues, such research projects concerning spinal cord injury can be adjoined to SwiSCI.
SwiSCI offers different ways of project collaborations:
- Research projects can use SwiSCI core data, i.e. variables routinely collected through Pathway I, Pathway II or Pathway III.
- SwiSCI Nested projects: Research projects can use variables routinely collected through Pathway 1, Pathway 2 or Pathway 3, combined with an additional data collection.
- SwiSCI Joint projects: Research projects can use variables routinely collected through Pathway 1, Pathway 2 or Pathway 3 combined with data from other sources.
