The Federation of European Nutrition Societies (FENS) was established in 1979, to support the European nutritional science community and European Nutrition Conferences.

Members are part of a larger European organisation dedicated to nutrition, which unifies the European nutrition societies and represents each of them and their country under one roof.

All FENS members are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this and actively participate in FENS.

Reasons your organisation should be a member

The founders of FENS wished to establish an organisation that is a voice for nutritional scientists across Europe. FENS provides a unified European voice on a global level.

Today, FENS support these aims through the FENS Conference, hosted by societies across Europe every four years. Individual members are active participants, by presenting scientific topics, FENS Task Force participation, and through grants and awards.

Member Organisations are active participants in FENS. Organisations propose and elect candidates to the FENS board, host the FENS Conference to profile and champion the scientific achievements, promote the activities of their Society.
