Together, through research, we can change the lives of people with dementia and their families. Some of the greatest progress has been made in care research, bringing new hope to everyone affected by dementia. And yet, only 12% of all dementia research funding in Europe addresses health and social care challenges (2016).
The first ‘Dementia Care Research Summit’ on 12 February 2020 will celebrate successes in dementia care research to date. We will review the landscape today and consider how the research and policy community can drive forward this vital area of research to change the lives of the over 850,000 people living with dementia today and their loved ones.
The summit is supported by Alzheimer’s Society, National Institute of Health Research and the Economic and Social Research Council.
