Research Projects

This database contains information on EU funded dementia research projects, undertaken since 2007. It is the product of a mapping exercise of European funding programmes for dementia research conducted by Alzheimer Europe in 2020. This database is not an exhaustive resource of information. It contains information about European projects that are funded by European programmes including FP7, H2020, IMI, JNPD, AAL and EU Health.

blood Proteins for early Discrimination of dEmentias

bPRIDE

Dementia is a group of disorders characterized by severe memory loss ultimately impairing daily life activities. Major forms are Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, and frontotemporal dementia. Each dementia type is caused by different biological factors and therefore requires a specific treatment targeting these factors. To develop effective...

Development of a novel FGL therapy and translational tests for regenerative treatment of neurological disorders

NEUROFGL

Neurodegenerative disorders such as, Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and chronic stress create a major economic burden to society and a substantial reduction in quality of life for patients and families. The development of neuroregenerative therapies is notoriously difficult and...

From air pollution to brain pollution – novel biomarkers to unravel the link of air pollution and Alzheimer’s disease

ADAIR

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a devastating disorder without a cure. Recent research demonstrates a link between AD and exposure to high levels of air pollution, yet detailed understanding of the connection does not exist. Air pollution, a massive public health issue known to pose a major threat to humans, is an increasing global concern. Researchers...

Identifying and treating SORL1-associated Alzheimer’s disease

SORLA-FIX

The majority of the risk to develop Alzheimer's disease is influenced by genetic factors. We previously found that carrying a genetic mutation in the SORL1 gene can lead to a greatly increased chance of developing Alzheimer's Disease. SORL1 is involved in the production and processing of Alzheimer proteins that accumulate in the brain. e have...

Interdisciplinary Network for Dementia Utilising Current Technology (INDUCT)

INDUCT

Dementia raises complex challenges for people with dementia, their families, and society. The European Parliament has called for investment in high quality, innovative technology research to improve dementia care but so far there has been little benefit because research has generally been limited, small scale and methodologically flawed. In...

Large scale interactions in brain networks and their breakdown in brain diseases

BRAINSYNC

The long-term goal of this project is to understand how neuronal assemblies exchange information (functional or neuronal communication), and how variability in neuronal communication explains variability in behavioural performance, both in the intact and injured brain. Communication involves temporal interactions between neuronal assemblies either...

Nanosystems for the early Diagnosis of Neurodegenerative diseases

NADINE

Medical diagnosis is currently undergoing a major revolution due to the fast discovery of molecular biomarkers, and the development of multimodal “metabiomarker” signatures. Progress, however, is hindered by low abundance of many biomarkers of interest in body fluids, in absolute concentration and with regard to other biomolecules. The aim of the...
