Dementia Forum X

– An international initiative focusing on the global challenges of dementia.

Dementia Forum X is a biannual event held for the first time in 2015 and again in 2017. The purpose of Dementia Forum X is to strive for a broader collaboration between executives from all parts of the global community, to meet challenges caused by dementia related diseases. The goals of Dementia Forum X are to:

  • Define challenges
  • Identify solutions
  • Take action!
The event is supported by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden and organized by Forum for Elderly Care in collaboration with Swedish Care International, Karolinska Institutet, Swedish Dementia Centre, Stiftelsen Silviahemmet and Forte as well as other selected partners. Dementia Forum X is a day of reflection and discussions between a hundred of the worlds leading business executives, policy-makers and other stakeholders. The participants are all selected and invited from five identified key sectors; finance, business, society, care and research.

By teaming up with the leading expertise from different parts of the global society, the first Dementia Forum X aimed at creating a joint understanding of the global effects of dementia. Furthermore, it was an accelerator for creativity, new initiatives and sustainable actions towards a better tomorrow.

In 2017, this quest continued at the second Dementia Forum X, this year held at the Royal Palace in Stockholm. The ambition of the meeting was to follow up on the conclusions and initiatives from 2015 and to jointly target unmet needs related to dementia disease on a global level. During the meeting, several successes in the dementia field were highlighted. Participants were able to interact with modern solutions to problems related to dementia, as well as engaging in cross sector dialogues.

Dementia Forum X also enabled interaction and communication with a broader audience through our corresponding global digital platform dementiaforum.org.
