The first meeting was sponsored by the International Society for Alzheimer Research (ISAO, www.alzheimer.nl)
Funding has been obtained from the 7th Framework Program of the European Union (FP7) for a large project, entitled ‘Healthy Ageing Through Internet Counselling in the Elderly’ (HATICE). In this 5-year project the optimal design for future dementia prevention studies was identified by comparing the three ongoing RCTs. In addition a large international RCT using an innovative internet-based intervention strategy was designed and is currently being executed as integral part of HATICE. More information on this project can be found on www.hatice.eu.
