The aim of the three-year project is to improve accuracy of diagnosis, and help shape support services. This funding has been provided to the university in partnership with the National Young Onset Dementia Network.

A consortium including the University of Northampton and international partners, also received €16.2m funding from the European Union for the AOELIX project. The funding will establish a cloud-based logistics system to allow shippers, warehousing firms, retailers and customs to access, exchange and use information.

Professor Simon Denny, director of research, impact and enterprise, said: “We are doing ever more high-quality and important research that changes the lives of people, nationally and internationally for the better. I am proud of my colleagues and their achievements.”
