To make scientific knowledge available to scientists as well as practitionners, the Danone Institutes promote scientific exchanges by regularly organizing scientific meetings, such as symposia, workshops and forums involving some of the most renowned experts worldwide.
These events present the latest developments in the field of food, nutrition and health, identify new research avenues, and explore the practical implications of new knowledge.
A new symposium is organized by the Yogurt in Nutrition Initiative (YINI).
The theme of this scientific event is “How yogurt could improve health in children”.
