The symposium is aiming at sharing the ongoing fundamental and applied research on the role of proteins within a nutritious, healthy and sustainable diet. It consists in two parts:
Full-day Scientific Symposium (30th March 2017)
A series of talks by international scientists representing academia, industry and non-for profit organizations will address emerging research on the role of sustainable sources of protein in the dietary needs, health and eating behavior in the general and subgroups of the population.
Half-day Applied Professional Workshop (31st March morning)
The applied perspectives will be considered to illustrate the development of healthy, nutritious and environmentally sustainable meals and recipes: Bridging the science to application.
