The final programme of the JPI HDHL conference on the 1st December in Brussels is set. Networking, active participation and learning from other perspectives, insights and needs are main aspects of the interactive conference programme. The complete programme connects to the main theme: “To work towards more societal impact of nutritional science” and can be found on the conference webpage.

What is new in the programme?
Dr John Bell, director for Bioeconomy at the European Commission DG Research & Innovation, will open the JPI HDHL conference. The plenary session continues with attention for the promising new JPI HDHL Joint Action “Policy Evaluation Network” (PEN). Dr. Wolfgang Ahrens, coordinator of the PEN, will present this new Joint Action and main objectives. Dr. Lucyna Wozniak presents the recently published LAB FAB APP (Lamy) report. The inspiring recommendations of the Lamy report will be further discussed during the interactive audience debate.

Given the high interest in the conference, a 6th workshop has been finalized with presentations of the three (almost) finished JPI HDHL Knowledge Hubs: DEDIPAC, ENPADASI and MaNuEL (Malnutrition). In the presentations and discussions will be extra attention for societal impact.

Other interesting programme items are the morning speed date session and pitches of young scientists about their JPI HDHL project in two afternoon sessions.
