CRN-I 2017 Symposium to Take Place 2 December in Berlin in Conjunction with Codex CCNFSDU Meeting

Manno, Switzerland, 3 August 2017—The Council for Responsible Nutrition-International (CRN-I), the international arm of the U.S.-based Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), today announced its annual scientific symposium will be held Saturday, 2 December, at the Park Inn by Radisson (Alexanderplatz Berlin, Germany), just prior to the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU) meeting. 

This year’s agenda will be developed under the theme of  “Healthy Aging, the Natural Consequences of Good Nutrition.” Presentations will explore questions including:  

  • What is “healthy aging”? 
  • How would one measure it? 
  • What is the public health impact of nutrition on the quality of life

Now in its eighth year, the CRN-I science-based symposium holds a strong reputation among the global scientific and regulatory communities. Registration is complimentary to all Codex official country delegations and available for a small fee for industry executives.

“Building on a multi-year theme exploring optimal nutrition, CRN-I’s 2017 symposium will bring together international experts sharing the latest research as well as policy insights,” said Jim Griffiths, Ph.D., CRN-I vice-president, scientific & international affairs. “We hope to add to the body of published data analysis supporting science-based standards setting, as we have done in past years.” 

Reports from CRN-I symposia have been published in the European Journal of Nutrition (2011–2016) and in Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology (2010), with translations in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish, available on the CRN-I website. 

Registration for CRN-I’s 2017 symposium will open soon. See for details and more information on sessions and speakers.
