Alzheimer Europe brings in unique experience from two perspectives. In the first place they represent the patient perspective and bring in extensive expertise in the field of qualitative research and ethical issues. In the second place, AE is a lobbying organisation promoting dementia awareness, care and research within the EU. As such they have major impact on policymakers at the European level and can contribute to the efficient dissemination and communication of the results of the project.
