Living, care and smart technology

05 November 2014

Ageing healthily and living independently for as long as possible: that's what everyone wants. Aided by smart technology, this is definitely possible. Tomorrow’s Home, which combines living, care and smart technology, already exists. It can be seen at the Let’s Gro Inspirational Festival to be held in Groningen.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
