The NNEdPro International Summit on Nutrition and Health is a leading annual scientific meeting. Professionals, educators, students and researchers from all over the globe connect to discuss relevant issues pertaining to food, nutrition and public health and to explore innovative propositions to complex challenges.

Building on the success of last year’s Summit, the event this year will be entirely virtual with live pre-conference webinars, satellite workshops and the main event on Saturday, 17th July 2021. Registration includes access to 12+ hours of engaging content!

Throughout the Summit, attendees will attend plenary sessions, interactive panel discussions and abstracts presentations around three main themes, including:

  • Identifying emerging and complex challenges in food and health systems.

  • Promoting resilient and sustainable health and food systems

  • Building competencies and capacity for effective communication and implementation of nutrition research.

The summit pre-events and main event will be recorded and made available after the 17th July 2021.


Our 7th Summit was carefully planned to create insightful discussions that are designed to be continued at the Food Systems Summit 2021 and Nutrition for Growth Summit 2021. This significant year of action on Nutrition provides a historic and timely opportunity to create a world in which all people have access to safe, affordable, and nutritious food by 2030.
