BRISE collaborates with established support programs that are already implemented in Bremen. BRISE systematically connects early childhood and preschool programs into a chain of interventions. The intervention begins in the prenatal period and ends after the children begin elementary school. The scientific monitoring allows for the analysis of the synergy effects of those support chains, which provides additional insights on the improvement of the policies. This leads to reciprocal interest in collaborations.
