Australian government funding for the Australian Dementia Network (ADNeT) was announced by the Hon. Ken Wyatt AM, MP, Minister for Aged Care on 2 July 2018. ADNeT is the largest single project funded through the Government’s $200 million, five-year Boosting Dementia Research Initiative launched in 2014 by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).
ADNeT will establish an integrated network of dementia researchers, clinicians and health service providers to enable ongoing, high-quality translation of research into clinical care for Australians living with cognitive impairment and dementia. ADNeT will enable fast recruitment of trial-ready research participants, and will support participants through their involvement in clinical trials.
