Take a peek at the programme here.
“I’m really excited about this programme,” said NutraIngredients senior editor Shane Starling. “Probiotics and prebiotics are a multi-billion euro global business but it is based on science, and it must exist within regulatory constraints with clever marketing and sensitive market savvy.”
“We’ve got all these elements covered and I can’t wait to get everyone together again in Amsterdam in February. We apologise the programme is a little late this year, but I think it’s a wait that’s well worth it.”
The Scientific Posters competition is up and running with entries coming in to our 9-person scientific committee ahead of a November 20 deadline. The winner will have the chance to present their science at #Probiota16 and all entrants receive a 50% discounted entry to the event.
If your research involves aspects of prebiotic, probiotic and microbiome science, we’d love to hear from you.
