The Alzheimer’s Society commissioned RAND Europe to analyse the UK’s dementia research “landscape” and workforce capacity. The following report relates to the state of funding and capacity in dementia research. It covers:
- An audit of the types of research on dementia conducted in the UK.
- A bibliometric analysis of UK dementia-related research, examining topics covered and appraisal of the UK’s impact.
- An assessment of the UK’s performance in dementia-related research, comparatively against global benchmarks.
- An audit of the UK dementia research workforce, with an analysis of the dementia workforce pipeline (from PhD to senior researcher levels).
- An assessment of the UK’s strengths and gaps in the global landscape.
- A forward-looking appraisal of the dementia research landscape and workforce capacity, noting these strengths, gaps and opportunities.
