Alzheimer Europe organises a Company Round Table meeting in Brussels


On 21 March 2023, Alzheimer Europe hosted a Company Round Table meeting in Brussels. The meeting was a hybrid event, with many participants attending in person and some joining remotely. It was attended by a total of 42 delegates, including 11 company representatives (from Eisai, EFPIA, Essity, GE Healthcare, Grifols, GSK, Novo Nordisk, Nutricia and Roche), 8 members of the Alzheimer Europe staff, Alzheimer Europe Chairperson Maria do Rosário Zincke Dos Reis, who hosted the meeting, members of the Alzheimer Europe Board and representatives from 23 member organisations of Alzheimer Europe. During the meeting, four speakers provided updates on recent policy and research developments.

First, Cindy Birck, AE Project Officer, gave an update on our Clinical Trials Watch. Next, Jannice Roeser from Roche shared some learnings on establishing partnership between industry and patient communities. Thomas Allvin from EFPIA gave then an update on EU policy developments. Finally, Jean Georges, AE Executive Director, informed participants about Alzheimer Europe’s activities in 2023, including the European Dementia Monitor. We would like to thank our sponsors and members for participating in this meeting and we look forward to welcoming them to the next Company Round Table meeting in June.
