Sustainable food – for our health and environment 

Get updated on the latest research on sustainable food and diet. Topics: Circular economy for more sustainable feed and food production and new sources of nutrients; Sustainable animal and plant-based food; and Gene technology in future food production for our health and the environment.

Main target groups: Researchers and students at UiO and NMBU

The recordings of the event will be published next week.

Chair

Circular economy for more sustainable feed and food production and new sources of nutrients

Professor John Crawford, Rothamsted Research, UK

Soil and health

Crawford is a theoretical biologist with a research focus on systems approaches. He works on the integrated behaviour of the soil-plant-microbe system; microbiology; the structure and dynamics of plant and microbial communities; and in the systems biology of plant, microbial and human cells.

 

Professor Anne Kjersti Uhlen, Faculty of Biosciences, Department of Plant Sciences, NMBU

Sustainable foods through innovative utilization of plant proteins

Professor Kirsten B. Holven, Department of Nutrition, Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, UiO

Is Salmon fishmeal a future sustainable and healthy ingredients for human consumption?

Associate Professor Thomas Sæther, Department of Nutrition, Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, UiO

10.15–10.45 Coffee break

10:45–12.05 Session 2

Sustainable animal and plant-based food

Helle Margrete Meltzer, Research director, Department of Infection Control and Environmental Health, The Norwegian Institute of Public Health

Sustainable diet

Meltzer is member of a group in The National Nutrition Council which released their report about sustainable diet in November 2017. She will present this report at the conference. She is also member of same workgroup workgroup as Usman Mushatq in Health&Care 21 (see below).

Usman Mushtaq, Medical Doctor, Member of the EAT Board of Trustees

A research and innovation system for a health promoting and sustainable diet

Mushtaq is member of the Health&Care21 group that published their recommendation in the report about a research and innovation system for a health promoting and sustainable diet (in Norwegian Et forsknings- og innovasjonssystem for helsefremmende og bærekraftig kosthold) in June 2017. He will present this report at the conference. He will also touch upon other initiatives from the EAT foundation.

Professor, Randi Oppermann Moe, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Production Animal Clinical Sciences, NMBU

Animal welfare: what is it and why should we care?
