Participate to put Parkinson's at the heart of European research

Help us shape a major new European research programme by completing a short 30-minute online survey.

Joint Programmes have been set up by The European Union to tackle some of the 'big challenges' that face us today, such as healthcare and environmental topics like climate change and energy security.

Neurodegenerative diseases has been selected as the first joint programme initiative, and an EU Joint Programme on Neurodegenerative Disease (JPND) has been created to improve the understanding of neurodegenerative disorders.

Neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's have been identified as 2 of the biggest health challenges for Europe today.

It's hoped that this programme will help generate new medical approaches for prevention, diagnosis and treatment for neurodegenerative conditions, with the ultimate goal being to find a cure.

This is in addition to ensuring the provision of health, social care and support so that individuals can receive optimum care at all stages of their illness.

They now need researchers, healthcare professionals and people living with these conditions to help identify common research goals like alleviating symptoms and lessening the impact for patients, families and health care systems.

We hope this new programme will boost research into Parkinson's across Europe by encouraging more collaborative projects and crucially attracting more funding.

As the biggest Parkinson's research charity in Europe, we've been involved in shaping this programme from its earliest stages.

Our diverse and innovative UK research projects aim to tackle every aspect of Parkinson's - but we cannot do it alone.

Please take the time to complete the survey and make sure the views of people affected by Parkinson's are at the heart of European research.
