EGEA conference 2023: registration and call for abstracts are now open!

6 January 2023

The next edition of EGEA conference “Diet, fruit & vegetables, and One Health: what contributions?” will take place from September 20 to 22 in Barcelona (Spain). This event will bring together scientific communities, decision-makers, and stakeholders. It aims at translating scientific evidence into action for a healthier and more sustainable food system. Registrations and call for abstracts are now open!

The One Health approach revolutionizes the traditional disciplinary method and challenges all health actors – working on human, animal or environmental health – to adopt a transversal and holistic perspective on their practices and knowledge. This new, rapidly developing scientific research stream is of relevance to address the complexity and the interconnections related to the food system.

250 participants expected in Barcelona

Thus, for its 20th anniversary, the EGEA conference (see below) invites the scientific communities, as well as all stakeholders interested in food and health issues, to jointly examine and address the contribution of diet and specifically of fruit and vegetables to human health and the sustainability of food systems and to explore the role of the consumers in the vegetalization of their diet.

This 9th edition will be co-chaired by Pr. Elio Riboli (Imperial College, London) and Dr. Joël Doré (Inrae). It will take place from September 20 to 22 in Barcelona (Spain). Registrations are open and limited to 250 participants.

Call for abstracts is open until May 30

EGEA 2023 conference will propose four plenary sessions, a round table and oral and poster presentations. Research addressing various issues will be presented: human health, food security and safety, sustainability (environment and natural resources, food waste, social aspects, economy, etc.), consumer behavior, public policies, etc.

Researchers, scholars, practitioners, and students are invited to submit abstracts for oral communications (up to 3 per session) and poster before May 30.

EGEA – from science to action

Created by Aprifel in 2003, EGEA is a series of unique international conferences. Bringing together all stakeholders and drawing on multidisciplinary knowledge, these events aim to provide concrete recommendations, based on science, to change practices and policies. For example, previous EGEA consensuses have played an active role in shaping the European School Scheme, a vast European program in favor of the consumption of fruit and vegetables at school. The WHO has also recognized EGEA as an effective and concrete strategy to promote the consumption of fruit and vegetables (WHO Europe, October 2008).
