13th European Nutrition Conference: FENS 2019 - Malnutrition in an Obese World: European Perspectives

Organised by The Nutrition Society in cooperation with The Nutrition Society Irish Section 

The Nutrition Society in cooperation with The Nutrition Society Irish Section are pleased, as hosts, to invite you to 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.

This year the conference will present European perspectives on ‘malnutrition in an obese world’. With increasing rates of non-communicable diseases globally alongside the persistent presence of nutritional deficiencies and undernutrition, the conference will take a wide-ranging approach to the topic.

Ove 90 sessions have been scheduled across the packed four-day conference programme with a focus on five themes:

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

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