During the year, the ADHD across the Lifespan Network organises meetings for its members (also at the annual ECNP Congress).

Database and protocols
The Network has established a collaborative database of ADHD samples for research and of common protocols for data acquisition. It is currently preparing an internet-based testing battery to homogenize and enrich existing phenotypic data of partners.
