Dear colleagues and friends,
We are very happy to invite you to the 33rd Alzheimer Europe Conference which will be organised in Helsinki from 16 to 18 October 2023 in collaboration between Alzheimer Europe and Muistiliitto, the Alzheimer’s Society of Finland.
After 1997 with its successful Conference “Alzheimer’s, the blind hunter”, it will be the second time that an Alzheimer Europe Conference is organised in Helsinki and the conference motto this year will be “New opportunities in dementia care, policy and research”.
These are exciting and interesting times for the European dementia movement with research on new treatments and improved diagnostics making progress. In parallel, we see a greater focus on making our societies more dementia-inclusive and ensuring that the views and voices of people with dementia are fully included in care, policy and research.
We therefore hope that our 2023 conference will be another great networking opportunity bringing together people living with dementia and their families, carers and supporters, but also volunteers and staff of Alzheimer associations, policy makers, health and social care professionals, researchers, academics and industry representatives from all over Europe and beyond. Alzheimer Europe conferences are truly unique in bringing together representatives with such different backgrounds and nationalities and we are sure that our Helsinki conference will be no exception.
We call on you to share your research, projects, activities and experiences via our call for abstracts, so that we will be able to develop an interesting, instructive and varied programme for all participants wishing to learn more about the latest developments and opportunities in care, treatment and management, research and policy.
We hope that your participation in this year’s conference will give you some unforgettable days with a truly exciting and innovative programme and a range of networking opportunities, whilst also discovering the amazing city of Helsinki. We are delighted that we will be able to invite you to a welcome reception in Helsinki’s City Hall thanks to the generous support of the Mayor of Helsinki.
As organisers, we are deeply grateful to his support as well as that of all our sponsors which support the activities of Alzheimer Europe in general and this Annual Conference in particular. This support makes it possible for us to provide highly competitive registration rates for a truly unique conference.
We look forward to welcoming you to Helsinki from 16 to 18 October.
