6th JPI HDHL conference
‘10 years of JPI HDHL: supporting the connection between food and health towards a systemic approach’
The 6th international conference of the Joint Programming Initiative ‘A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life’ will take place digitally on April 20 and 21, 2021.
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.

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.
