What are the JPND Goals?
JPND aims to confront the growing challenge posed by neurodegenerative diseases in our ageing population by bringing together researchers, existing research evidence and national funding bodies to investigate the key research questions and barriers to progress in this area.
This will be achieved by coordinating current and future approaches, collaborating where appropriate and by sharing tools, techniques and other resources more efficiently among participating countries.
Our current strategy is to increase coordinated investment in neurodegenerative disease (ND) research aimed at finding causes of disease, developing cures, and identifying appropriate ways to care for those with ND. In this our immediate goals are:
- To add value to national investments through coordinated action
- To encourage the development of national research strategies in ND
- To engage in partnership to reach the full potential of JPND
