IUNS 20th International Congress on Nutrition

Granada Congress Centre, Paseo Violon, S/N, 18006 Granada, Spain


Since its founding over six decades ago, IUNS remained true to the guiding principle of its mission ”to promote the advancement of the science of nutrition, research, and development through international cooperation globally“. The International Congress of Nutrition (ICN) serves as its global forum of interactions in research and information exchange and topical subjects often formed the basis for substantial parts of the scientific programme.

Traditionally, the ICN offers the unique global forum where almost all disciplines of nutrition, diet, and health are considered and results of basic and applied research projects are presented. Also traditional is the fact that ICN is used as recognised platform to discuss research outcomes and views of projects conducted at multinational, regional, and global level.
