Welcome to the Final Conference of the COST Action FA1403 POSITIVe to be held the 25th and 26th of September 2018, Lisbon, Portugal.
The scientific network COST POSITIVe was developed to address through a multidimensional approach, the complexity of the inter-individual variation in response to plant food bioactives consumption and in relation with the prevention of cardiometabolic disorders. This large network has gathered top-level scientists from diverse research areas (nutritionists, clinicians, microbiologists, experts in gut microbiome, nutrigenomics, molecular biologists and food scientists) and from more than 70 Universities and Research Institutions distributed across 32 European countries. During these past four years, these experts have worked together to compile and critically analyse the available literature in order to enhance our understanding of the potential factors responsible for the inter-individual variation in response to plant food bioactives consumption, including aspects related with their bioavailability and with their bioefficacy to improve cardiometabolic health. Considering these factors is crucial for establishing effective food based dietary guidelines underpinned by scientific knowledge of which food components are responsible for the health effects, which individuals can benefit from them, and how the knowledge can be used for the design of foods with specific health claims and personalized nutrition.
The final Conference of the COST Action POSITIVe, opened to the whole scientific community, will present the main findings of the work carried out within the network and will also invite distinguished speakers to present recent advances and interesting perspectives in the field of personalized nutrition. This conference will also be the place for discussion with panels of scientists and stakeholders about the integration of plant food bioactive compounds in future strategies of precision nutrition to become healthier.
We hope that you will join us for this POSITIVe’s conference!
Thank you for your consideration.
The Steering Committee of the Action.
