Brussels, 25 Jan 2006
COST, the intergovernmental programme for European cooperation in the field of scientific and technical research, is organising a strategic workshop on 'Food and health: the way forward' in Brussels, Belgium, from 1 to 3 February.
The main aim of the workshop is to identify emerging issues at the interface between food and medicine. It also aims to identify gaps between the two domains and trigger initiatives to deal with them either through COST itself, or through the EU framework programmes, ESF, or other international organisations.
Leading scientists from the relevant fields have been invited to give keynote talks on what has been achieved in their field and what important issues need to be studied in the coming years.
