Fourteen JPI HDHL funded projects joined the final symposia on the 21st of February in Brussels to present and discuss their project’s results. The overall focus of the final symposia was: how will the project results reach their maximal impact? The researchers shared the expected impact of their project results and their vision on the implementation and dissemination of those results.
All projects funded under the Joint Funding Actions “Nutrition and Cognitive Function (NutriCog)”, “Intestinal Microbiomics (IM)” and “Food Processing for Health (FP4H)” were present. The Mirdiet project from the call “Biomarkers in Nutrition and Health (BioNH)” also joined the symposia. The final symposium enabled researchers to connect with the researchers of other JPI HDHL funded projects, to learn from each other and to discuss possible follow-up actions.
Scientific experts were invited for each call subject to evaluate the projects and contribute to the discussions held after each presentation. Members of the JPI HDHL Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), Stakeholder Advisory Board (SHAB), Management Board (MB) and funding agency representatives also attended the final symposia and participated in the discussions.
As an introduction to the final symposia, Rhonda Smith from MinervaComms provided an inspiring workshop where researchers could learn how to get their key message across by creating a short vlog. The first results are shown at the JPI HDHL Youtube Channel.
