ENLP, the European Nutrition Leadership Platform, is a network of over 750 food and nutrition professionals from over 230 different organizations including academia, governmental and non-governmental departments, non-profit organizations and the private sector. Its mission is to establish a powerful, independent and sustainable network of leaders in nutrition worldwide to train, educate and inspire the next generation and ensure a strong impact on nutrition and health. ENLP launched in 2010 annual seminars, ENLP Essentials Programme and ENLP Advanced Programme, which have been proven as an extremely inspiring and effective model to develop leadership and communication skills. The 2018 edition of the Essentials and Advanced Programme Seminars will be held in Luxemburg on 21-29 March and 21-25 March 2018, respectively.

The ENLP Essentials Programme is open to all food and nutrition professionals across Europe who want to become more effective at managing non-scientific/soft-skill challenges such as communication, interpersonal skills, leadership and strategic influence. It has been developed for ambitious final year PhD students and postdoctoral fellows or early-stage researchers who want to make a difference in the world of nutrition. Nutrition professionals with a MSc or PhD degree in nutrition or related sciences, who have several years of professional experience in the area of food/nutrition and health, are also invited to apply.

The online appplication period for the 2018 edition is open until 10 December 2017.

The ENLP Advanced Programme is a highly practical and personalised course and focuses on refreshing and developing the participant’s management and leadership skills. It is designed for professionals with minimum 6-10 years of experience. Candidates must hold a Senior Manager position in food or health sectors, and a MSc or PhD in a relevant subject. The seminar is open to both ENLP Alumni and new members. Applications are especially encouraged from countries under-represented in the ENLP, like Eastern and Central, and, to a lesser extent, Southern Europe. Preference will be given to candidates older than 35.
