The EPSO Working Group on Nutritional Security finalised its programme for its fourth workshop taking place online on the 4th December 2023.
The food nutritional security goal foresees to ensure sufficient, safe, highly nutritious food, sustain local communities and foster correct lifestyles and healthy ageing for all. The current climate change and other stress factors, such as world population growth, wars and local conflicts, new emerging zoonotic diseases, are impacting on our dietary choices.
To reach the nutritional security goal, there is a need to redesign our food systems towards more sustainable, resilient ones which can be capable of providing enough food with a high nutritional quality for everyone.
In this context, the EPSO ‘Nutritional Security’ Working Group aims to discuss and contribute to defining new paths and solutions for innovative solutions in the food and nutrition area:
- Genetic improvement of major and minor crops
- Novel technologies for crop biofortification
- Minor crops and novel foods for more sustainable productions and nutritious diets
- Assessing the nutritional value of high nutritious food
- Discussion towards the next consensus document
The workshop will start at 13:45 and end at 17:15.
We look forward to meeting you on the 4th December!
