Grant SET – E-health at Home

SET is an incentive scheme with the aim of safeguarding and scaling up existing e-health solutions, to offer elderly people living at home and people with a (risk of) chronic illness / disability the opportunity to continue to live independently at home for longer with the help of e- health.

It concerns existing e-health:
