The first 25 research projects of the Dutch “Delta Plan Dementia” have been announced and will start before the end of the year. The studies vary in focus, from new treatments and prevention to better patient care and support. Results are expected in the coming years.

The 25 studies have received over EUR 21 Million in funding. The Dutch Government was the major contributor. Alzheimer Nederland was the major private investor with a contribution of over EUR 1 Million. Gea Broekema-Prochazka, director of Alzheimer Netherlands said “We expect breakthroughs that are important for the patients that are faced with dementia today and for the patients of the future.”
