Access to rights of vulnerable groups and the problem of non-take-up

Upon a proposal of the French Presidency of the EU, the Social Protection Committee held a thematic discussion on the topic of Access to rights of vulnerable groups and the problem of non-take-up (NTU). The exchange was framed by the presentation of a comparative study, conducted by the French Directorate for Research, Studies, Evaluation and Statistics (DREES), analysing the issue in five European Countries. Researchers from the University of Antwerp presented the effect of various forms of automation on the take-up of income-tested health insurance in Belgium.
