Statute & governance


Trisomy 21 Research Society (T21RS) was founded at 17th April 2014 in Groningen, The Netherlands, under the auspices of Mr. Albert Kraster, civil-law notary practising in Groningen and member of The Royal Dutch Association of Civil-law Notaries. The society (Dutch: vereniging) is a non-profit organization for the stimulation of scientific research on Down syndrome, operating under Dutch law.

A revised version of the articles of association was adopted by the T21RS General Assembly on the 10th of June 2017. The English translation of the original Statutes of association written in Dutch can be downloaded below (PDF).

The T21RS Code of Governance contains the guidelines around best practice in governance and is regularly reviewed. The Code of Governance includes the Conflict of Interest Policy and the Industry Associated Membership conditions.
