The conference objective is to bring stakeholders together to discuss major brain diseases, i.e. stroke and Alzheimer disease in the societal context in order to highlight the imbalance between the societal and individual costs of brain disease, and the resources allocated to dealing with the problem, and to help build a more coordinated European research strategy to tackle it better in future.
An analysis of the burden and cost of the disease in question will take place, and will then allow patients, policymakers, scientists and doctors to have their say.
As a result, conference conclusions will be developed to make recommendations to the Member States to better tackle issues that are at stake.
