JPI A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life 3rd International Conference 19th of June 2015, Crown Plaza Hotel Brussels

Objective

The objective of this conference is to achieve a dialogue between the participants – which are a representation of the great variety of stakeholder in the area of JPI HDHL – to support alignment and collaboration between research programmes and policies.

About JPI HDHL

In Europe as well as in other countries, such as the United States, Canada and New Zealand, governments are struggling with the growing social and economic burden of diet- and lifestyle-related diseases including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies for example in the elderly population are also of growing concern.

With the aim of drastically reducing the burden of diet-related diseases, the JPI HDHL aims to provide a holistic approach to develop and implement a research agenda to understand the interplay of factors known to directly affect diet-related diseases, discover new relevant factors, mechanisms and strategies, as well as to contribute to the development of actions, policies, innovative products and diets.

Within the framework of the JPI HDHL, 25 Member States including two Third Countries are working together. Jointly, they are confident that by working together they can increase knowledge and deliver innovative and improved nutritional and health intervention strategies. A significant amount of research activities on nutrition and health is taking place within the involved countries, but also in other countries and at a cross boarder level. Alignment of these activities will increase the impact of the individual efforts to resolve the global societal challenge of diet- and lifestyle-related diseases

Participants

The conference will bring together many stakeholders in the food, health and nutrition sector, including policy makers, funders, scientists, health care professionals, industry and NGO’s.
