13th European Nutrition Conference 13th European Nutrition Conference

Attendee: Prof. Mohammad Juffrie as IDIF representative in Dublin, Ireland, on October 15th – 18th, 2019.

The Nutrition Society in cooperation with The Nutrition Society Irish Section as hosts conducted the 13th European Nutrition Conference, Federation of European Nutrition Societies (FENS) 2019 in 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.

In year 2019, the conference has presented European perspectives on ‘malnutrition in an obese world’. With increasing rates of non-communicable diseases globally alongside the persistent presence of nutritional deficiencies and undernu trition, the conference has taken a wide-ranging approach to the topic.

The conference has focused on five themes:

  1. The determinants and drivers of malnutrition across the life-course,
  2. Novel technologies for dietary assessment,
  3. An exploration of current metabolic perspectives,
  4. The food environment, and
  5. Other emerging issues.

A range of leading researchers, organizations and institutions from across the world has presented cutting-edge research on topics as diverse as the microbiome, chrononutrition, nutritional reductionism, and nutrigenetics. Different perspectives have covered the genetic, molecular and cellular aspects of malnutrition, metabolism and physiology, and the epidemiological evidence, in addition to explore the policies, practices and behaviours implicated in designing successful interventions.

Over 2,500 delegates from across the UK, Europe and further afield attended along with representation from European nutrition societies.
