The North Sea Dementia Group (NSDG) started in the year 2000 with a meeting in Oslo.
At the first meeting representatives from Dementia Research and Development Centres were invited to participate. They came from countries bordering the North Sea (hence the name) though very quickly new members from other countries across Europe joined.
Core aim of NSDG is to exchange inspiration to improve dementia care. More on this in 'who we are'.
