Alzheimer Europe hosts Company Round Table meeting in Brussels

Tuesday 18 February 2020

On 18 February, Alzheimer Europe hosted a Company Round Table meeting in Brussels. It was attended by representatives from Biogen, Lundbeck, Nutricia, Otsuka and Roche. Also in attendance, were: 4 members of the AE staff, including Executive Director Jean Georges; 20 representatives of AE member organisations and 1 representative of the World Dementia Council (WDC).

Jean Georges updated sponsors and other delegates on a new Alzheimer Europe report on the prevalence of dementia in Europe, sharing some of the main findings (see article on the report for these). Project Officer Cindy Birck then gave an overview of recent developments in Alzheimer Europe’s Clinical Trials Watch. Policy Officer Owen Miller shared some recent policy development at WHO and EU level. He particularly focused on changes at the Parliament and Commission, and on the future research and health programmes of the EU.

Finally, Jean Georges looked back at some of Alzheimer Europe’s activities in 2019 and gave some insight into the organisation’s 2020 activities. The meeting was chaired by Charles Scerri, Vice-Chairperson of Alzheimer Europe, who ensured there was time for questions and discussions after each presentation. We would like to thank our sponsors for participating in this meeting and we look forward to welcoming them to the next Company Round Table meeting in Brussels, on 9 June.
