Market potential: The elderly population will grow significantly in the near future, which means that several tens of millions of people in Europe can be a potential target group for a developed solution.
Timing: A solution is welcome as soon as it is developed, as the health care system is already heavily burdened.
Desired result: Proof of concepts, tested and evaluated prototypes for furhter development and validation.
Information on challenge owner: University.
