Save the date: Dutch Dementia Researchers Conference: Bridging minds, breaking barriers

ZonMw, Alzheimer Nederland, Health~Holland and DEMPACT present the Dutch Dementia Researchers Conference. We invite every dementia researcher in the Netherlands to attend this conference in the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht. Be sure to mark the 15th of November in your calendar, the registration link will follow this spring.

This one-day conference wants to stimulate knowledge exchange and collaboration between researchers. Through (poster) presentations, all Dutch dementia research will be covered, from fundamental to applied research in healthcare and wellbeing. 

The program includes various parallel sessions and engaging speakers. There is ample opportunity to get to know each other and learn about implementation, best practices and target-group participation. At this conference we collectively make a significant contribution to the implementation of dementia research.

For the evaluation of the abstracts and the program’s content, we are seeking a committee. Do you have a minimum of 2 years as a postdoc and would you like to contribute to the conference? You can apply until 31 march 2024 via


One of the parallel sessions will be the DEMPACT-track. Here, dementia researchers can exchange knowledge and experiences in the field of implementation and communication.

About the congress

This conference replaces the old conferences of ZonMw and Alzheimer Nederland, such as Mix en Match and Meet & Connect. The focus will be more placed on the exchange of scientific knowledge, but there is room for getting to know fellow researchers as well. Additionally, a significant change is that the official language will be English.

We hope to welcome you on the 15th of November!
