Situation

It is a challenge to advance the physical and mental health and well-being of children, especially in groups with low economic status and children with special needs. In this project we take digital support of school-aged children and their caregivers a big leap forward, by not only monitoring their health, but also by providing interactive e-health solutions (so-called ePartners), including robot buddies and virtual agents that enhance children’s health and well-being.

Course of action

This is an international project under the EUREKA scheme involving 11 partners from The Netherlands and Switzerland. The project is funded by Health Holland and Innosuisse.
