Using four projects, TRISEARCH develops evidence-based interventions to promote health literacy in the workplace. The sub-projects focus on different target groups in professional life (apprenticed trainees, working people exposed to workplace-related risk factors and management executives) and emphasise different topics. The common factors of all the projects are: evidence accumulation, health-economic evaluation and physical activity, which are to lead to cross-project insights. Thus, the network also makes an important methodological and structural contribution to evidence-basing in movement-orientated prevention.


Taking the new law on prevention into account, the evaluation of, among other things, the implementation and effectiveness of a sponsor-wide financed, multi-modal prevention service is integrated into the AtRisk project.

Cross-cutting issues

Within the scope of integral topics, measures and methodical standards are developed which are implemented in the complex interventions. The integral topics are evidence accumulation, health-economics and physical activity.


This integral element in the network’s project addresses the methods and the applications of evidence-based health promotion.

More about the project

Physical activity

The integral topic “physical activity” in the network’s project records and analyses patterns of physical (in)activity in different target groups with the aid of both subjective and objective measuring procedures and also investigates the significance of health literacy with respect to movement.

Health Economics

The integral field “health economics” serves to support the network’s partners in developing the capacity for carrying out health-economic analyses.
