Partnership NWO Nutricia - Kick Off afternoon

Kick off Partnership Nutricia on specialized nutrition that influence immune fitness

In 2018, Nutricia Research and NWO domain Applied and Engineered Sciences (AES) initiated a Partnership research programme investigating “new concepts for specialized nutrition that influence immune fitness”.

Academic scientists from the Netherlands were invited to submit proposals for research projects that give answers to the scientific and technological challenges linked to this topic. Based on the evaluation of the submitted projects by an expert programme committee, four projects were granted for a total budget of €3.000.000,- being equally paid by the partners. More information on these projects can be found here.

On March 26 the Kick off of the Partnership will take place at Danone Nutricia Research in Utrecht, including a mini-symposium in the afternoon. Herewith, you are cordially invited for this mini-symposium in the afternoon (13:30-18:00).

For this afternoon we have put together a very interesting programme in which the granted projects will briefly be presented by the principal investigators, followed by  lectures on immune fitness and nutrition by Prof. Harald Renz (Philipps University of Marburg) and Prof. Helen Roche (University College Dublin).

We are looking forward to your attendance!

Kind regards,

Selma Wiertsema (Nutricia Research) and Lisette Krul (NWO domain AES)
