Research Collaborations

One of our key priorities is to promote the collaboration of scientific research into ADHD with evidence-based information and supporting the efforts of its members throughout Europe, in an effort to combat ignorance, stigma and intolerance with regard to ADHD. This page lists the research projects ADHD Europe is currently or has previously collaborated on:

  • Aggressotype (Investigates aggression in ADHD and conduct disorder)
  • Eat2BeNice  and New Brain Nutrition (Effects of Nutrition and Lifestyle on Impulsive, Compulsive, and Externalizing behaviours)
  • The MIND project (Investigates the clinical, cellular and molecular aspects of ADHD and autism)
  • The CoCA project (Investigates the shared causal mechanisms of ADHD, depression, substance abuse and obesity. An intervention study with light therapy and exercise aims to improve quality of life.)
  • ADDUCE (Study long-term safety in ADHD treatment during November 2011 and April 2016)

You can follow updates from these projects on our social media, using the links above, or on our news page.

Message from the past President

Over the past three years as President of ADHD Europe, I have been fortunate enough to get on board with a number of interesting research projects and learning about the world of scientific research into ADHD and co existing conditions. Funding for research from the European commission is very much dependent on research consortiums including the patient voice at every stage of the process, from developing the proposal, submitting the grant and playing a significant role throughout the project. Here is a list of projects which are really interesting for patients to learn about and for some of them I have been involved in ensuring our voice is heard, helping with disseminating outcomes, sitting on ethics advisory boards and helping to keep scientists firmly grounded so they can make the links between scientific investigations and outcomes for patients.
