Dear colleagues,

I would like to share with you some very interesting events and calls just around the corner.

Next AIEAA Conference will be held in Pistoia next 13-14 June with the title: “Tomorrow’s Food: Diet transition and its implications on health and the environment”.  The 8th AIEAA Congress will therefore focus on the conundrum represented by the interaction of economic development, nutrition and health, and sustainability. Sustainable diets are intended to address the increasing health and environmental concerns related to food production and consumption. New evidence is needed on the effectiveness of public policies for sustainable diets. Participants intending to present a paper are requested to submit a long abstract (minimum 1500 words; maximum 2,000 words) before February 15, 2019.

EIT Food Innovator Fellowship aims at identifying talents worldwide with creative and innovative potential, wishing to expand their skill repertoire through advanced training for the development of an innovative idea with significant impact in the food sector. The formation of the Innovator Fellowship teams will be performed by gathering about 50 individual talents in a hackathon context. Each postdoc aiming will be given the possibility to pitch his/her idea to the other talents to form an EIT Food Innovator Fellowship team. Winning this competition will lead the successful team to a high-level training conducted by the three project's partner organizations. Participants and mentors will work hand-in-hand to have the project proposal finalized.
