The aim of the conference is to coordinate and organize interdisciplinary efforts to set up a researc network "Nutrition Disparity and Equity", by bringing together researchers from multidisciplinary fields. This research network supports the objectives of the 4-year research and training programme of the Edema-Steernberg Foundation for the longer term.
The central topic of the conference is ‘nutrition disparity and equity’ of socially and economically disadvantaged groups. This conference will focus on disparities in dietary habits and lifestyle, with an orientation towards health potential rather than health difference. Attention and effort are directed to early stages of life and the economic and social conditions of those who may benefit most from dietary and lifestyle improvements.
