  • Age-related diseases, in particular Alzheimer’s disease severely impact the life of individuals, public health systems, national prosperity, productivity and economic growth. The full potential of the emerging biomedical technologies to fight dementia will become available through co-ordinated and inclusive policies. Governments can provide the right policies and long-term strategies to support the translation of biomedical research findings into health innovation. This requires adequate financial, technical and human resources.

    Dementia represents a significant challenge for public health systems worldwide. The ageing of society, and increasing prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease in particular, drive the demand for further research into innovative therapies and highlight the need for a supportive policy environment. The case of Alzheimer’s disease illustrates the challenges of dementia research throughout the entire health innovation cycle. Alzheimer’s disease has been considered as relevant to characterise the main (policy) issues associated with innovation in biomedicine for healthy ageing.
