Background & Objectives

The promotion of individual health literacy is becoming increasingly more important. This is because a high level of health literacy strongly promotes health and improves dealing with illnesses in different sectors of society. For this reason, the interdisciplinary research network TRISEARCH develops and evaluates interventions for promoting health literacy and addresses here the workplace setting. The target groups range from vocational students to management executives.

In addition to this, the network also makes an important methodological and structural contribution to evidence-basing complex interventions in movement-orientated prevention. By means of close collaboration with partners working in the field, TRISEARCH builds a bridge between the science and the practice of prevention.
Based on the research network: the Centre for Prevention Research, TRISEARCH will further develop such that it will address other topics in prevention research.

bmbfTRISEARCH is a German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) funding measure with which topic-centred research networks are established which work on priority topics in primary prevention and health promotion. In this way, the research capacities and structures in prevention research should be sustainably strengthened, and the interdisciplinary collaboration, the transfer of research results to primary prevention and everyday life health promotion should all be improved overall. Furthermore, the scientific excellence and the international compatibility should also promote the exposure of prevention research in Germany. Generally, the knowledge gained should improve the weight-of-evidence of prevention and health-promotion strategies. The networks are oriented towards applications: that is, the participants working in the field, such as prevention providers and/or sponsors, are involved.

TRISEARCH – the Research Network

Within the framework of three integral topics, the research network TRISEARCH carries out research and develops measures and methodological standards which are implemented in complex interventions

Promoting young researchers

TRISEARCH intensively promotes young academics by supporting post-graduates and post-doctorates. The main objective of promoting young academics is to sustainably strengthen the research capacity and structure of the network partners’ young scientific researchers. Moreover, the exchange and networking within the network is promoted by jointly supporting the young scientists. Transparency is created regarding opportunities offered for further training and additional needs-based proposals are prepared and offered.

Practice Partners

The TRISEARCH Practice Partners are companies in which and with whom the scientific sub-projects are directly implemented in practice. Thus, the Practice Partners are rehabilitation institutions, vocational schools, companies and General Practitioners practices.
