16–18 October 2024 IECN2024: The 4th International Electronic Conference on Nutrients—Plant-Based Nutrition Focusing on Innovation, Health, and Sustainable Food Systems


Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to this virtual online conference, an exclusive meeting dedicated to the latest developments in scientific research in the field of nutrient research, with a focus on innovations for health and sustainability. This conference aims to serve as a multidisciplinary platform for the exploration of innovative research and advancements in nutrient science. Emphasizing both macro- and micronutrients, the conference will delve into novel methodologies for nutrient extraction, bioavailability, and functional food development. Analytical techniques such as metabolomics, proteomics, and nutrient profiling will be discussed in the context of their application to food safety and quality. As the global search for healthier and more sustainable diets intensifies, the role of nutrients and lifestyle modification are at the forefront. For a healthier and more sustainable diet, it is clear that most people will need to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diet. Moreover, as we strive to feed a growing world population, the role of plant-based foods becomes increasingly critical. The aim is to explore the effectiveness of using plant-based nutrition as a primary approach in preventing, suspending, and even reversing chronic diseases. Furthermore, the conference aims to foster dialogue on the critical intersections between nutrient science, public health, and sustainable food systems. Our collective goal is to challenge existing scientific paradigms, broaden the scope of research, and contribute to an integrated approach where innovation, health, and sustainability coexist harmoniously.

The topics of this conference include:
S1. Plant-Based Diets: Health and Well-being
S2. Innovation in Dietary Choices
S3. Diet and Chronic Disease Management
S4. Global Nutrition Trends: Shaping Health and Athletic Performance
S5. Behavioral Approaches to Healthier Eating
S6. Nutrition Across the Lifespan

I extend my warmest welcome to you, esteemed scholars and experts, as participants of this virtual online conference. Together, we will embark on a journey into the diverse world of plant-based nutrition, sharing knowledge and discoveries that will shape the future of food systems for the benefit of humanity and the planet.

Best wishes,
Mauro Lombardo
