About the EuroFIR Food Forum 2020

 

The EuroFIR Food Forum is our annual flagship event for those interested in food composition, nutritional data, standards and tools, and their application in food, nutrition and health research. This year, the Forum focussed on Association business, specifically the Discussion Groups and EU-funded projects, and it is great opportunity to meet and network with EuroFIR Members and other researchers, dietitians and nutritionists, companies – large and small –, health and food authorities, and exchange ideas about food, nutrition and health research globally.
