13th European Nutrition Conference
The next FENS CONFERENCE will take place 2019 in Dublin
The FENS conference is held once every four years and is the premier European nutritional science meeting bringing together nutrition scientists, researchers and health professionals from across Europe.
This year’s 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 conference is hosted by The Nutrition Society in cooperation with The Nutrition Society Irish Section and takes place from 15 – 18 October in the Convention Centre Dublin, Ireland.
Over 90 sessions have been scheduled across the four-day conference programme focusing on five 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.
A range of leading researchers, organisations and institutions from across the world will present cutting-edge research on topics as diverse as the microbiome, chrononutrition, nutritional reductionism, and nutrigenetics. Different perspectives will cover the genetic, molecular and cellular aspects of malnutrition, metabolism and physiology, and the epidemiological evidence, in addition to exploring the policies, practices and behaviours implicated in designing successful interventions.
Over 2,500 delegates from across the UK, Europe and further afield are expected to attend, along with representation from European nutrition societies.
