Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear Colleagues

on behalf of the Federation of the European Nutrition Society (FENS) and the Italian Human Nutrition Society (SINU), we are proud to announce the 9th European Nutrition Conference to be held in Rome, on October 1st - 4th, 2003.
The first FENS congress on the 3rd Millennium will be the forum to enphasize the role of nutritional factors in the genesis of the most chronic diseases.
The conference has to face the challenge of dramatic socio-economic transformations, particularly in Eastern Europe, of the increasing population dependence on manufactured food and rapidly improving production, storage and distribution system.
We have the pleasure to invite you to participate in this conference that will bring together leading nutrition experts from all over Europe.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Rome,

Nino Carlo Battistini
SINU President
