What is the Nutrition Society?
The Nutrition Society was established in 1941 ‘to advance the scientific study of nutrition and its application to the maintenance of human and animal health’. We are the largest Learned Society for nutrition in Europe. Our members work in a range of fields and many sit on key advisory committees. The Society holds regular conferences – including the Annual Summer Meeting, which in 2013 will be held at Newcastle University, UK.
Why sponsor this Meeting?
The Nutrition Society has a network of friends who continue to make it possible for us to run annual scientific meetings, where cutting edge research and ideas are exchanged. If your organisation is involved in providing nutrition-related commodities or services, then this is your prime opportunity in 2013 to access this important audience who will be gathered in one place, at one time.
Who will attend?
Around 400+ delegates from the UK, Ireland and other European countries are expected to join us – from nutritionists, dietitians and food industry representatives, through to academics, students and researchers.
The Annual Summer Meeting 2013
The conference and exhibition will be held at Newcastle University, UK on 16–18 July 2013.
The meeting has been designed to reflect a wide range of themes in nutrition and ageing.
Four main symposia will focus on:
- Biology of ageing
