This photo was taken from a television programme concerning dementia and its influence on people with dementia, their supporters, and the society. Among these items and raising awareness for dementia, this programme showed an impression of a Meet & Connect gathering organised by Alzheimer Nederland and ZonMW. The aim of these gatherings are to seek collaboration among all Dutch researchers dedicated to dementia research and this collaboration is exactly what I found that day. I hope this will inspire others to organise these kinds of events. Sophie van Westendorp
