Whole Grain Summit 2020 - Call for Abstracts

The 7th Whole Grain Summit (WGS) with the theme "From Science to Global Application" organised by ICC in collaboration with the Whole Grain Initiative (WGI) and the Council for Agricultural Research and Economics (CREA) will be organised from 16-18 November 2020 in Rome/Italy.

This 2020 WGS aims at building on past experience to update current knowledge worldwide on whole grain and to prioritise interests, focus and leverage people, resources and funding around new models, approaches and initiatives within the food system that help increasing whole grain intake in all sectors of the population. By inviting internationally renowned scientists as well as experts who shape the whole grain food system to participate, we collectively harness and directly apply the current body of biological and behavioural research & technology. This is also accomplished by strategically focusing on the development of new tools, methods, and approaches that fill critical gaps in the whole grain food system, to enhance whole grain availability, accessibility and consumption, safeguarding sustainability and consumers’ health.

The Conference Committees made up of members from a variety of public and private institutions from all over the world will be able to guarantee a plurality of opinions and build an outstanding programme spanning 2.5 days, which encompasses oral presentations, workshops, panel discussions, tabletop exhibitions, poster presentations.

Don’t miss your chance to showcase your research and how it can be translated into application, to interact with your peers, to learn something new, to expand your network, to get inspiration for new ideas and solutions in the magnificent frame of the city of Rome!

The call for abstracts as well as the early bird registration is now open.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available - view the options!

We hope to meet many colleagues and collaborators during the WGS 2020  and are excited at the prospect of expanding our network and sharing some Italian hospitality with everyone.
