FENS is a supporter of the 8th International Congress taking place in Croatia from the 19th – 21st of May 2022. Organised by The Croatian Federation of Nutrition Associations is holding the congress bringing together nutritionists with “experts from various fields of science with the same interest and aim: food technologists and engineers, agronomists, medical doctors, and other allied health professionals, pharmacists, kinesiologists, and psychologists and offers them the platform for exchanging the latest scientific knowledge related to nutritional science”.
