Objective

It is intended to create a European research infrastructure for Parkinson's disease (PD) by extending existing national networks. The organisation will rely on a web-based data management system. A central patient registry and a clinical research and trial centre will be established. Means for an ongoing economic review of the costs of PD and a financial strategy to ensure sustainability beyond the funding period will be derived. Europe will provide a critical mass for research; encourage sharing of information, standardized transactional registration of PD patients, spread of good clinical practice and, eventually, the construction of a virtual reality engine for driving research. Thus, an environment will be created which is intended to give both research and therapy of PD a powerful and effective European dimension at an internationally competitive level.
