Herzlich Willkommen bei der Unfallforschung Greifswaldgerman version

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to the website of the Crash Research Group Greifswald

The Crash Research Group investigates the complex setting and environment revolving around road traffic crashes. Belonging to this field are the analysis of crash mechanism and the causation of injuries. Apart from this, the measures for road and vehicle safety are examined. The aim of our research is to transfer knowledge into real interventions in order to guarantee adequate health care for the injured road users and safe environments for all road users.

The Crash Research Group is associated with the Department of Trauma and Reconstructive Surgery at the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-University Greifswald, Germany. What in the year 2000 started as a regional crash data survey with a new research concept, has in the meanwhile become an established national and international operating research network. Numerous new research fields could be opened up on the national as well as international level, a dense network of experts deals with current themes of road safety, emergency and trauma care. Yet, the focus aims more and more at future issues, which could determine road and vehicle safety in the next decade. Nevertheless, the development of future road safety interventions mandates to know about the key effectors already today. It is here that we want to provide our contribution.

At this point I want to thank you gratefully for your interest in our work. I am very pleased to illustrate you the backgrounds, aims and results of our research over the next pages.


Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h.c. Axel Ekkernkamp
