The Potsdam Summer School of International Nutrition, which focuses on “Future Food” will be held in Potsdam, Germany during October 13th to 19th 2015. Just in the week ahead of the 12th European Congress of Nutrition held in Berlin.
The growing world population, urbanization, climate change and changes in dietary habits are among the megatrends of the future. Protein and energy demands as well as sufficient micronutrients must be sustainably available to substantially reduce the risks of the double burden of malnutrition such as micronutrient deficiencies and diet-related non-communicable diseases. This provides global agriculture, industry and society with a daunting challenge: We need to rethink what we will eat, not only in emerging and developing countries. In the Potsdam Summer School of International Nutrition "Future Food" the most important trends will be discussed.
International Alumni of any German University from developing countries who are professionally involved in nutrition and interested in exchanging ideas, problem concepts and country specific approaches in the framework of rural or urban, public or private sector development are cordially invited to apply for the summer school.
DAAD and BMZ will support travel, participation and housing during the Summer School and the participation at the 12. European Congress of Nutrition (October 20th-23rd).
Extended deadline for application is May 31st, 2015.
