AE Board looks back on successful 2017 and approves 2018 Work Plan and Budget

Monday 04 December 2017

At its meeting of 4 and 5 December in Brussels, the Alzheimer Europe Board reviewed the different 2017 activities and approved the organisation’s Yearbook on care standards in residential homes and the Ethics report on the recognition of dementia as a disability. The Board also reviewed the evaluation of the participants of the Alzheimer Europe Conference in Berlin and welcomed the positive assessment of the conference’s scientific and social programme and the organisational aspects. The Board was particularly pleased to see that 96.43% of conference participants said that they would recommend the Alzheimer Europe Conference to a colleague.

The Board also congratulated the AE Director and his team for the successful application to the EU health programme for a framework agreement covering the organisation’s core activities for the next 4 years. The completion of annual operating grants will allow AE to continue its high degree of activities. The Board therefore also unanimously adopted the 2018 Work Plan and Budget of the organisation.

Finally, the Board approved a memorandum of understanding with the European Academy for Neurology which highlights the future collaboration between the two organisations including the participation of the AE Director in the review of the EAN guideline.
