In the care of refugees, a number of specific factors (e.g. language and cultural barriers) lead to a particularly high risk of dropout. The project PrevDrop supports the research network in planning and implementing measures to prevent dropout. In addition, predictors and subjective reasons for dropout in refugees will be investigated by a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods across the studies of the research network.
The cross-sectional project CUMI accompanies all subprojects of the research network in the cultural adaptation of their respective planned interventions. The aim is to increase the expertise on cultural adaptations, to bundle and expand the know-how of the individual consortia and to improve the cultural sensitivity of the applied interventions. In this way, the effectiveness of the interventions can be improved.

The cross-sectional project KS-Diagnostik aims to bundle expertise and experience in culturally sensitive diagnostics across the research associations, formulate common standards and enable exchange of diagnostic instruments. Furthermore, an open access platform will be established to make existing instruments available for researchers and clinicians.
The Digital Assessment Tools Task Force (DATTF) is a cross-sectional project that supports the consortia in planning and implementing IT-related requirements (e.g., data collection using smartphones, tablets, or PCs; data protection). In this way, common barriers in the use of digital tools are to be eliminated as early as possible. The project is also responsible for creating and maintaining the cross-network website.
