2024 Sponsorship Opportunities

Introduction

Alzheimer Europe has a longstanding tradition of collaborating with corporate companies, as well as other organisations, foundations and projects involved in dementia research or the development of pharmaceutical, clinical, care or technical solutions and interventions for people with dementia and their carers.

In this section, Alzheimer Europe describes various sponsorship opportunities that the organisations offers companies, projects and organisations interested in supporting its corporate activities.

Separate documents provide information on sponsorship opportunities for Alzheimer Europe’s Annual Conference in Geneva or for Alzheimer Europe’s public involvement strategy and opportunities for people with dementia/mild cogni-tive impairment and/or their families and support to provide feedback and input via public involvement activities.

 

Sponsorship Opportunities

 

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 2024, Alzheimer Europe will organise four meetings (27 February, 18 June, 18 September and 10 December) with interested companies. Three of these meetings will be hybrid and one will be online only.

Alzheimer Europe will update its company partners on its activities and future plans and projects. 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.

At these meetings, time can be allocated for those companies interested in sharing their research activities and discussing issues such as the design of clinical trial protocols or patient recruitment with representatives of the Alzheimer Europe Board or the organisation’s member associations. 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 Alzheimer Europe website section dedicated to the clinical trial watch: EUR 7,500

Clinical Trial Watch

The organisation will include information on clinical trials on treatments for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, as well as diagnostic trials and trials for medical devices, nutritional supplements and other interventions.

To ensure the readability of the provided information, Alzheimer Europe will collaborate with members of its European Working Group of People with Dementia and its European Dementia Carers Working Group. All information will also be sent to company representatives to check the information provided.

The Febru-ary edition will include a special supplement dedicated to the 2024 European Parliament elections.

AE will continue to work with its members to increase the membership of this group.

In 2024, Alzheimer Europe will actively collaborate with its member organisations and encourage candidates at the European Parliament elections to commit to joining the European Alzheimer’s Alliance and to support the organisation’s campaign to make dementia a European priority.

Prior to the elections, Alzheimer Europe will organise a reception with supporting Members of the European Parlia-ment (27 February) to launch the organisation’s Manifesto. After the elections, the organisation will actively work towards reconvening the European Alzheimer’s Alliance and organise a lunch debate on 10 December. On the same day, Alzheimer Europe will organise its first European Parliament Dementia Day where it will organise bilateral meet-ings between people with dementia, their carers and representatives of national Alzheimer’s associations with their elected MEPs.
