On the 23rd through 25th of September, the third biennial Science Forum will focus on the connections between nutrition, health and agriculture. The series, launched in 2009, “seeks to generate new ideas and approaches among scientists on ways of improving food security, human nutrition and health, alleviating poverty and establishing environmental sustainability.”
Science Forum 2013: Nutrition and health outcomes: targets for agricultural research will bring together science, policy,program and funding experts to expand critical research areas that address the use of agriculture to improve health and nutrition in developing countries. The forum will also include a “Knowledge Fair” to help early-career scientists develop partnerships.
Science Forum 2013 is co-hosted by the Independent Science and Partnership Council (ISPC) and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) of Germany on behalf of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR).
The event will be held in Bonn, Germany.
