Conference - New York City, United States
The field of nutrition sciences has made significant progress in mainstreaming nutrition as central to survival and critical to maintaining health. There are, however, still many questions left unanswered from core biological concepts to those related to public health impact evaluation of interventions. With limited resources and pressing needs, identifying the most critical knowledge gaps is essential to guide scientists towards much needed research and is a first step towards building the kind of consensus that will actually transform the way malnutrition is tackled.
This conference will present a research agenda for nutrition science developed in collaboration with the World Health Organization and many global experts. It will emphasize the continuum starting from identifying research gaps, to dissemination, advocacy and eventually influencing policies and practices. This research agenda will become an effective tool to address the nutritional problems of today and those of the future, and provide a basis for creating dynamic collaborations among research institutions and implementing agencies, effective dissemination of scientific knowledge, and consensus building among stakeholders.
