New feature: Projects

Please note that we have opened a new YHRD section called “projects”. Herewith we want to encourage colleagues of the YHRD network to contribute to scientific endeavors outlined here. Large collaborative projects - as the PPY23 or the RM-YSTR study both with more than 100 coauthors - proved that this is an efficient way to cooperate and achieve meaningful results.

bug fix

Unfortunately we introduced a undetected bug within our last software update (December 7th). Under some circumstances the requested Metapopulation and National Database was mistakenly assumed to be empty when there was no match found. This behavior is unintended and was corrected by now. (Thanks Tom and Peter)
