We ended the first day with a walking dinner in Brussels and a fantastic view at the rooftop.

The second day started with a speech from Secretary-General Patricia de Clercq (department Agriculture and Fishery) and Secretary-general Johan Hanssens (department Economy, Science and Innovation). We are very thankful to had the meeting in Belgium and to receive insights from their involvement at European and global level. Furthermore, there was an update from our HDHL Early Career Network, a representative from the Access To Nutrition Initiative (ATNI) joined, and the meeting ended with a FOODPathS workshop. This to gather information from funders, scientists, and stakeholders.

We are looking back on a very fruitful meeting. Thanks to all who joined and participated in the meeting.
