The "3 strut" arrangement is quite unusual - there are two thick parallel struts and a third thinner parallel aileron linkage behind them. This is a feature of the S.E.T. designs.
Judging by the angle of the struts, the two wings are not staggered.
However, this wing also features a scallop above the cockpit. This was not an usual feature of the S.E.T. wing which tended to be straight.
The only example of this type of "3 strut"+"non-staggered wing"+"scalloped wing" combination was used on the S.E.T.7K.
However, the S.E.T.7K did not have a closed cockpit.
So... my guess is that this is a S.E.T.7K with a modified closed cockpit.

This was my guess, too (without spending any time to check the references).

The S.E.T. XV has "N-shaped" struts and staggered wings.
It is a S.E.T., but which?

Looks like IAR-47. My opinion...

C'mon, the I.A.R. 47 was a monoplane, this one is a biplane.

I'm not sure what is seen is the upper wing of a biplane. It could be a temporary building in the background. So it's a biplane or a monoplane?
If the picture was better ...
