2022 Sponsorship Opportunities

Introduction

Alzheimer Europe provides a number of sponsorship opportunities for commercial sponsors interested in supporting the organisation’s corporate activities (see chapter 2 below) or the organisation’s Annual Conference (see chapter 3 below).

Corporate activities

 

Individual sponsorship opportunities

As in previous years, Alzheimer Europe will provide companies with a pick and mix menu to opt for those sponsorship opportunities which are most in line with a particular company’s interests. They are presented here below:

 

Company Round Tables

In 2022, Alzheimer Europe will organise four meetings with interested companies in order to discuss common issues with regard to the research, regulatory and European policy environment. Depending on the COVID-19 situation at the time, these meetings may be face-to-face or virtual.

Alzheimer Europe will present its plans and activities at these meetings. In addition, the organisation will liaise with the participating companies to identify issues of common interest and will invite company representatives to make presentations on selected topics. These meetings will also serve to discuss the EU policy and research landscape and update members of AE about ongoing clinical trial developments.

Alzheimer Europe hopes that these joint meetings will serve as a frank exchange of information and views and lead to a better understanding of the positions of Alzheimer associations and industry. During these company round table meetings, AE will update its members about the ongoing clinical trials in Europe and seek to develop a dialogue with companies on these trials.

At these meetings, time can be allocated for those companies interested in sharing their research activities and discussing issues such as design of clinical trial protocols or patient recruitment with representatives of the Alzheimer Europe Board. If necessary, this section of the meeting will be closed to invited representatives only and AE participants may be required to sign confidentiality agreements to cover the discussions on issues not in the public domain. If timing does not allow to combine the meeting with a company round table, this type of advisory meeting can be organised on a stand-alone basis either in person or virtually. Typically, these meetings will be between one and two hours long.

Individual Sponsorship opportunities

  • Participation in one company round table meeting: EUR 3,000/meeting
  • Participation in all four company round table meetings: EUR 10,000
  • Acknowledgement on AE website section dedicated to the clinical trial watch: EUR 7,500

Alzheimer Europe will continue publishing its special magazine entitled “Dementia in Europe” with a clear focus on policy developments in different European countries. This magazine will highlight initiatives on a national or European level affecting people with dementia, their carers and national Alzheimer’s associations and will feature interviews with high level EU and national policy makers.
The magazine will be published three times in 2021 (February, June and October) and will be distributed free of charge to Members of the European Parliament and the European Commission, as well as through the member organisations of Alzheimer Europe to national policy makers. Furthermore, the magazine will be distributed to other European stakeholders who currently receive the e-mail newsletter of the organisation.
Alzheimer Europe can feature non-promotional adverts of companies, organisations or projects in the magazine. Companies, organisations or projects can also sponsor a special supplement which will be distributed at the same time as the magazine. Content, images and layout will need to be provided by the sponsor.

Throughout the year, Members of the European Parliament will be regularly updated on this through direct contacts, as well as through regular e-mail updates and the magazine.

The successful candidate will be awarded at a face-to-face meeting in the European Parliament in September or during the Alzheimer Europe conference in Bucharest in December.
