Innoboot 2021; Food for Health
‘You are what you eat’ is a statement that originates from the year 1826 by Brillat-Savarin. However, for a long time the importance of food in relation to health and healthcare has received little attention (less than 40 hours of doctors training in 5 years!). This is slowly changing and the important relation between food, health and healthcare is receiving more and more attention.
With this renewed recognition there is much potential for research and innovation in this field. During this year's online Innoboot event we will focus on the future of food for health and healthcare. We do so together with researchers, entrepreneurs and other representatives from the healthcare and food sectors.
The programme will include two keynote speakers that will cover the subject both from a science and a business point of view. And two rounds of break-out sessions with pitches and ample room to discuss various topics, like:
- How do we stimulate people & patients to eat healthy?
- What diet is best to prepare a patient for surgery?
- What food and diet could slow down / prevent certain chronic diseases?
- And of course, what exactly is healthy food in what situation?
