- Evaluate EU mental health policies/guidelines for standard and internet-based care for depression in specialized care settings in countries with different health care systems and access levels of standard and internet-based care
- Compare clinical efficacy and cost-effectiveness of blended internet-based treatment and treatment as usual for depression within controlled research settings
- Predict which patient groups could benefit from internet-based treatment vs. standard treatment by modeling patient characteristics
- Develop evidence based recommendations on how internet-based depression treatment can be cost-effectively integrated into routine specialized care systems for depression in EU mental health care systems.
- Develop a business case to ensure structural implementation of these services
