To share scientific knowledge with scientists and health professionals, the Danone Institutes promote scientific exchanges by organizing scientific meetings, such as symposia or workshops. They involve some of the most renowned experts worldwide. These events present the most recent developments in the field of food, alimentation, nutrition and health, identify new research avenues, and explore the practical implications of new knowledges.
