You can now register for the 6th JPI HDHL conference, which takes place digitally on April 20 and 21.
In 2020 we reached a milestone: 10 years of JPI HDHL. Our 6th international conference offers the perfect opportunity to discuss with our stakeholders how we can build on our experiences and achievements. While there are many lessons to be learned and shared, one of the main recurring issues is how nutrition often falls in the gap between the themes of health and food. JPI HDHL stands for the need to bridge that gap, to ensure that nutrition research and policy receives the attention it deserves. This is part of the urgent, broader call for a food systems approach. Therefore, we will explore during our conference how a systemic approach can be implemented to create more impact; what does this mean for scientists? What does it mean at a policy level? And how can we better connect the two? Through topical keynotes, a panel, workshops and informal discussions we will cover these and other questions relevant to the future of food, nutrition and health research.
• Dr. Sébastien Treyer (Executive Director of the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations) on connecting research to policy and the needs of society.
• Prof. dr. John Mathers (Professor of human nutrition Newcastle University, JPI HDHL scientific advisory board vice-chair) on the development of nutritional research in light of 10 years of JPI HDHL.
For more information about the programme and the keynote speakers, take a look at our latest news item, or take a look at the JPI HDHL conference website. More information will follow in the upcoming days!
We look forward to welcoming you, because only through joint efforts can we move closer to achieving the aim of JPI HDHL in the next 10 years: the prevention of diet-related disease, for healthy people on a healthy planet. You can already register for one or for both days, here.
After registering, you will be invited to choose your inspiration sessions and workshop in the upcoming weeks.
