The Mediterranean Diet is more than just food: it’s a way of life. Classified by UNESCO, in 2010, as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the Mediterranean Diet brings together gastronomy, tradition, culture and healthfulness. Inspired by the ever-changing cultural landscape of the region of the Mediterranean basin, this diet is an open dialogue between secular practices and innovation.
The International Conference on Mediterranean Diet and Gastronomy aims at Linking Innovation, Sustainability and Health, and will be held at the University of Évora (Évora, Portugal) on October 15-16, 2018. During the two days of the conference, there will be renown national and international experts that will bring their knowledge and vision about what motivates food consumption and how science-based gastronomy can be a precious tool to promote traditional food products and the Mediterranean Diet.
The call for papers for the Conference is now open, submissions include abstracts and posters.
If you have a product, project or idea you’d like to share with a broad audience of both national and international participants, you can also apply for a space on the conference venue and/or become an official sponsor of the conference.
