On February 7, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie received in audience Professor Dieter Ferring and Dr. Isabelle Tournier of the Integrative Research Unit on Social and Individual Development (INSIDE) of the University of Luxembourg at the palais. The two guests of the grand ducal duo work for the CONNECT project of the University of Luxembourg, which aim is to set up an interactive web platform to improve the planning of care for people with Alzheimer's disease or related dementia.

CONNECT was initiated by the Fondation du Grand-Duc et de la Grand-Duchesse and funded with money raised for the wedding of the Hereditary Grand Duke and Hereditary Grand Duchess. Guillaume and Stéphanie said at the time that they wished to use the money donated as wedding gifts to improve the lives of the elderly and projects focused on social entrepreneurship in Luxembourg. And while we hadn't heard a lot about this in the past few years, it's nice to see that a lot is going on behind the scenes!
