20–23 October 2019 17th Euro Fed Lipid Congress

Sevilla, Europe

Euro Fed Lipid is a federation of 13 scientific associations concerned with Lipids, Fats and Oils. The federation represents 2000 individuals and companies.

Its mission is the furthering of lipid science and technology and the cooperation and exchange of ideas between scientists and technologists at a European level.

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 17th Euro Fed Lipid Congress (20-23 October 2019) that will take place in one of the most luminous and colourful cities in Europe, Sevilla. Since it is being held in 2019, at the door of the new decade and new research programmes, the congress has been named “Driving Science and Technology to New Horizons”. Then, it is time to rethink and to replan research into new projects and to identify new knowledge gaps that needs to be filled. Therefore by, interacting with others and exchanging viewpoints is the first step to initiate new ways, to open new lines, and why not, also to realize how relevant is our research findings for others and for solving society problems. How much our perspective is transformed when it is shared with others! Big projects have been possible due to friendship and trust, because there is not Science without personal interactions. And, honestly, face to face meetings are very much more rewarding than talking through new technologies.

The voyage of the ideas requires a travelling to catch up with colleagues, being Sevilla a perfect arena for hosting scientific and technological discussions on lipids, for showing the latest and the most innovative results, and for setting the basis for a New Horizon in Research.

Beyond the topics of the divisions of Euro Fed Lipid, we are featuring transversal sessions that underline the cross-disciplinary, cross-sectoral, and cross-actor current researches.

The congress organization warmly invite you to come to Sevilla and attend “your congress”.

16–19 June 2020 3rd International Conference on Food Bioactives & Health

Parma, Italy

Dear Friends and Colleagues, It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Food Bioactives & Health, that will be held from the 16th to the 19th of June 2020 in the amazing city of Parma, Italy. This third conference in the series comes after the great success of the previous meetings, held in Norwich in 2016 and in Lisbon in 2018. Both events were very well organized and were a great success. We are, therefore, committed to match these standards and are preparing what we are sure will be a unique event. The topics addressed by FBHC2020 have been broadened to cover a wide range of topics on food bioactives and health, including (poly)phenols, carotenoids, glucosinolates & other organosulfur compounds, fatty acids & sterols, polysaccharides, and peptides & protein. In addition, a session will be devoted to toxic compounds, an often overlooked topic that is important from a holistic perspective in the role of food bioactives and their impact on human health. Particular attention will be paid on transversal topics such as personalised nutrition, gut microbiota, dietary intake, and nutritional policy. The Conference aims to offer plenty of networking opportunities, providing the chance to interact with renowned scientists and to stimulate creative exchange among researchers. Young scientists will have a lot of opportunities to showcase their work and obtain feedback from experienced international scientist. June is a perfect time to visit Parma, a lively and cultural city, located in Northern Italy, that is surrounded by parks, vineyards, lakes and medieval castles. Most importantly, Parma is a “food city”. It has been recognised as UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy and hosts the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) headquarters. The congress year, 2020, will be a great time to visit Parma as it will be the Italian Capital of Culture and full of numerous special attractions. In addition, we are planning a “family friendly conference”, with organized activities for the children of delegates during the sessions, including "learning through playing” games focusing on healthy nutrition and lifestyle. We hope you will participate in what will be a memorable conference in the beautiful city of Parma! With best wishes, The Organizing Committee
