The conference takes place on February 20, in Brussels with the theme: Diet as leverage point towards a healthy and sustainable food system. Now that the programme is finalized, registration for the workshops and inspiration sessions has opened on the conference website. If you already registered for the conference, you will receive an email with information about how to sign up for the parallel sessions.
Programme in a nutshell
The conference will be kicked off by Dr. Line Gordon of the Stockholm Resilience Centre, who speaks about initiating change for future-proof food systems and how gastronomy, or the art of eating well, can contribute to this. Next, we will discuss with the audience and a panel of experts how to better connect policy and R&I needs and the role of diet towards a future proof food system.

Afterwards, we offer you the opportunity to get inspired by sessions about
  • the art of a dialogue for a healthy and sustainable food system,
  • making healthy and sustainable choices easier for consumers,
  • education for transformation of local food systems by the Milan City Lab (part of Fit4food2030),
  • innovative legume products, and
  • how a supermarket can foster inclusivity and better eating.
After the lunch Helen Roche, professor of nutrigenomics at University College Dublin, will give a high level overview of the research challenges and priorities in the field of diet, nutrition and health status, connecting this to the presentation of the new JPI HDHL Strategic Research Agenda.

In 5 interactive parallel workshops, participants have the chance to discuss
  • the impact, adoption and legacy of research,
  • public and private sector action to increase healthy food environments,
  • an educational module for innovation in the food system,
  • innovative approaches to R&I investments and the role of public and private funders, or
  • the knowledge needs around food intolerances and allergies.
