The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has decided to award a Veni grant to Esther Metting. With the grant money, Metting will be able to further develop her own research ideas for three years. Esther’s main appointment is at the UCMG, but she is also affiliated to FEB.

The Veni grants, together with the Vidi and Vici grants, are part of the NWO Talent Programme. The Veni grants are designed for outstanding researchers who have recently gained a PhD. Within this Talent Programme, researchers are free to submit their own topics for funding. In this way, the NWO wishes to stimulate innovative and curiosity-driven research. The NWO selects the researchers on the basis of their quality, the innovative nature of their research, the expected societal impact of their research proposal, and the possibilities for knowledge utilization.

Metting, together with COPD patients and care providers will develop a method that will enable non-digitally skilled people to benefit from the health advantages of E-Health. As the healthcare sector increasingly uses E-Health to improve treatment. As a result, the treatment and resulting health of non-digitally skilled persons is lagging behind.
