More resilience, home more

The project is funded with grant funds provided by 'Funds NutsOhra'. This fund promotes initiatives that increase opportunities for vulnerable people. For the coming three years, the fund will support the program by providing twelve million Euros to boost innovations in the care for the elderly. For more information please click here.
