Why Attend

ILSI’s mission is to provide science that improves human health and well-being and safeguards the environment. There is no substitute for the in-person engagement that has come to define ILSI’s Annual Meetings. Each year, we join scientific colleagues from academia, government, industry, and civil society for state-of-the-science symposia, keynote lectures, networking events, and ILSI branch meetings.

Learning Opportunities
Get the latest information in new technologies and innovations for diet and activity assessment, study design, food safety, novel foods, and food processing & waste. The scientific program at the ILSI Annual Meeting is relevant for all experts in the food safety and nutrition communities.

Nothing beats the value of interacting with colleagues in-person. ILSI brings scientific thought leaders together from all sectors, allowing for face-to-face discussion and collaboration to solve and identify some of the biggest challenges facing the food safety and nutrition community. 

Attending ILSI Annual Meetings allows participants to take a step back and look at challenges in nutrition, food safety, and health through the viewpoint of colleagues that they don't engage with normally.

Attending ILSI Annual Meetings allows participants to draw attention to challenges that not everyone is aware of.  It is a chance to connect with other experts and take a leadership role while using the resources and network provided by the unique ILSI platform.
