Technologies for Brain Health and Dementia Prevention Meeting

27th January 2023

Following on from the success of the workshop which took place in June 2022, the SDRC and DHI have created the Technologies for Brain Health and Dementia Prevention Special Interest Group(SIG). For more information about the Aims and Themes of this SIG, please visit the SDRC website.

Our first meeting, at Alzheimer Scotland’s office in Edinburgh, will set out the group’s next steps and priorities for the coming year. We will also discuss some funding calls that have recently launched.

This meeting will be a wonderful opportunity for researchers of all career stages, and everyone else with an interest on technology and innovation to work together, share ideas and contribute to developing this important area of research.
