The 13th European Nutrition Conference organized by the Federation of European Nutrition Societies (FENS), will take place from 15 – 18 October 2019 in the Convention Centre Dublin, Ireland.
The conference is held once every four years, and is the premier European meeting within nutritional science for nutrition scientists and researchers, bringing together nutrition and health professionals from across Europe. This year the conference will present European perspectives on ‘malnutrition in an obese world’. With increasing rates of non-communicable diseases globally alongside the persistent presence of nutritional deficiencies and undernutrition, the conference will take a wide-ranging approach to the topic. The focus will be on 5 themes:
- The determinants and drivers of malnutrition across the life-course,
- Novel technologies for dietary assessment,
- An exploration of current metabolic perspectives,
- The food environment, and
- Other emerging issues.
