The NNEdPro International Summit on Medical & Public Health Nutrition Education & Research 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 entirety virtual with live pre-conference webinars, satellite workshops and the main event on Saturday, 17th July 2021. Registration includes access to 10+ 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, sustainable and healthy propositions across food and health systems

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


Our 7th Summit was carefully planned to create insightful discussions that will 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.
