On 18 November, the EU-FINGERS Consortium held the 2021 General Assembly (GA) e-meeting, in which all partners of the consortium actively participated.
During the e-meeting chaired by Professor Miia Kivipelto, EU-FINGERS partners presented their research progresses, exchange ideas and discussed ways forward. The discussion included findings from the WW-FINGERS SARS-Cov-2 survey, items of scientific dissemination, online registries and the use of digital technologies as part of EU-FINGERS’ methodology enabling tailored interventions for risk reduction and prevention of dementia and Alzheimer´s disease.
The Consortium has been also growing with the addition of new partners, which attended the GA for the first time: the Luxembourg University in Luxembourg and Fundación CITA-Alzheimer Fundazioa in Spain. These institutions had the opportunity to present their work during the e-meeting. The new partners enrich with expertise and data the EU-FINGERS activities and synergise European research efforts towards dementia risk reduction and prevention.
