MyNewGut Final Conference

MyNewGut Final Conference

Microbiome Influence on Energy balance and Brain Development-Function
Put into Action to Tackle Diet-related Diseases and Behavior

EUFIC, together with all partners of the MyNewGut project, is organising a final conference to present the results of this five-year EU funded project and provide an input on how the human gut microbiota and its genome (microbiome) influence obesity, behavioural - and lifestyle-related disorders.

The MyNewGut project – which falls under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme, - brings together 30 partners from 15 different countries and aimed to identify specific dietary strategies to improve the long-term health of the population.

Why is it relevant for research and innovation?

Emerging evidence indicates that the gut microbiome contributes to our ability to extract energy from the diet and influences development and function of the immune, endocrine and nervous systems, which regulate energy balance and behaviour. This has led to hypothesize that developing microbiome-based dietary interventions can be cost-effective measures to prevent diet-related and behavioural disorders.

The conference will take place on 18 October 2018 at Stanhope Hotel, Rue de Commerce 9, B-1000 Brussels at 9 and will open with a session chaired by Isabelle de Froidmont-Görtz from DG Research & Innovation of the European Commission.

Dietary Fibre Conference 2018 preliminary programme & speakers announced

The 2018 Dietary Fibre conference (DF18) in Rotterdam, The Netherlands marks the 6th conference of the highly successful Dietary Fibre Conference series. Starting in 2000 in Dublin, the DF conference is held every three years with the last edition being held in 2015 in Paris. DF conferences focus mainly on the integration of nutritional and consumer science with food technology, product development, analysis and legal aspects. The 2018 edition in Rotterdam will cover all sources of dietary fibre and their diversity regarding impact on food structure, the human gut microbiome and health. Furthermore, state-of-the art reviews by authoritative speakers will be held and updates on new developments in major international projects, including MyNewGut will be given.
