In May 2011, the project e-PREDICE (Early prevention of diabetes complications in people with hyperglycaemia in Europe) of the Department of Clinical Medicine and Preventive Medicine has been evaluated favourably for a Grant by the European Commission. E-PREDICE aims at testing the long term efficacy of different therapeutic schemes for the early prevention of diabetic complications in people with hyperglycaemia currently under lifestyle intervention.

Building on the DE-PLAN (Diabetes in Europe - Prevention using lifestyle, physical activity and nutritional intervention project) this new project aims at an early prevention of diabetes and diabetic complications. This project was developed in cooperation with Professor Jaakko Tuomilehto. The Center for Vascular Prevention as part of the Department for Clinical Neurosciences and Preventive Medicine will be cooperating partner in this EU-project and responsible for the measurements of cognition and quality of life.
