EU Funding Goals

DRNI is interested in building a network and participating in projects and actions relating to dementia and neurodegeneration.

We are keen to collaborate with other organisations working within the same area, in relation to clinical, basic and social science and research as well as policy making.


DRNI is a multi-disciplinary network of researchers in the area of dementia and neurodegeneration, and is made up of clinicians, scientists and social scientists.

Our strength lies in the network members’ belief that the integration of knowledge and practice from diverse research traditions has the potential to radically improve our understanding of dementia and ND, in relation to prevention, care and quality of life.
