The 11th Nordic Nutrition Conference (NNC 2016) was held in Gothenburg 20-22 June, 2016. About 560 persons attended the conference. 

An overarching goal of the Nordic Nutrition Conferences, which are held every 4th year, is to gather Nordic nutrition scientists and professionals to present their latest scientific results and discuss important issues for nutrition research. The 12th Nordic Nutrition Conference will take place in Finland, in 2020. 

A special objective of NNC 2016 was to create a bridge between public health and clinical nutrition research for better understanding of the association between food, dietary habits, health and disease. The presentations and discussions did thus include parallel tracks for public health and clinical nutrition, with common plenary sessions. Under the congress theme “Bridging Nutrition Sciences for Health in the Nordic Countries”, session topics covered a broad range of scientific areas, as well as the translation of current science into nutrition policies and clinical practice. We aimed to provide a comprehensive programme, updating current science and its interaction with society and clinical practice, and for the exchange of new ideas.

Thanks to the speakers, participants, sponsors, partners and exhibitors for valuable contributions to the sucessfull 11th Nordic Nutrition Conference.
