RESEARCH WORKSHOPS

Research workshops are held every semester on the Torribera Food and Nutrition Campus of the University of Barcelona. At these events, national and international researchers bring the academic community up-to-date on how their research projects are progressing. Workshops serve as a forum for scientific discussion, facilitating dissemination of knowledge and the scientific output of researchers. The general public and external researchers can also take part and  share their knowledge with the aim of better  understanding contemporary eating behaviours.
