Alignment of National Activities

A JPND Action Group is seeking to identify areas within JPND countries whereby nationally-funded investments and activities can be aligned in order to increase impact on the challenge of neurodegenerative diseases (ND).  Both ND-directed investment under national programmes and exploitation of national infrastructures to support ND research are being explored.

The remit of this Action Group is to:

  • Progress priorities identified in the JPND Research Strategy through increased coordination of national activities.
  • Identify existing national resources and initiatives where potential exists for linking, harmonization and sharing of knowledge to address research questions specific to neurodegenerative diseases.
  • Identify approaches that may facilitate wider access to national technology platforms or infrastructures such as biobanking, neuroimaging or informatics capabilities, and promote the sharing of data and resources.
