Nutrition information as a tool of consumer empowerment and public health protection ?
- Anne-Christine Fornage, University of Lausanne
- Marine Friant-Perrot, University of Nantes
- Amandine Garde, University of Liverpool
This conference, organised jointly by the Universities of Lausanne, Liverpool and Nantes, will focus on the role that nutrition information can play in promoting healthier food choices (food being defined broadly to include alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages). It proposes to adopt an interdisciplinary – or even transdisciplinary –viewpoint; we would particularly welcome contributions by lawyers but also by economists, public health experts, psychologists… We would also welcome contributions focusing on specific case studies– looking at the experience gathered in countries that have evaluated the effectiveness of their food information rules in promoting healthier diets.
If you are interested in presenting a paper, you should submit an abstract of no more than 500 words as well as a short biography by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission deadline: 21 October 2017.
We are hoping to invite several early career researchers to present their work. Selected papers can be presented in either English or French. However, all participants should be fluent in English to understand, take questions and otherwise participate in the conference that will primarily take place in English.
