Dinner meeting Innovations, 23 April 2015

Our second inspirational IFFI dinner meeting in 2015 is scheduled for 23 April. We look forward to welcome all members, former members and invitees who are interested in ‘Eat2Move – it’s all about balance’.

Innovation topic: Eat2Move – it’s all about balance

In the bustling heart of the Dutch top-level sports – sports centre Papendal – R&D managers, product and business development managers, application and process technologists in the international food ingredients industry (IFFI members and non-members) will enjoy a varied programme in the context of the Eat to Move initiative.

Eat2Move is a collaboration between Wageningen University, Gelderland Valley Hospital, InnoSportNL, NOC * NSF, HAN University of Applied Sciences, NIZO food research, FrieslandCampina and Sports Center Papendal, initiated by the Gelderland Valley Nutrition Alliance.
The activities of Eat2Move consist of exploratory research, experiments in testing environments, sharing knowledge and develop products and services applicable in the field of nutrition and sports.

Guest Speakers

Jeroen WoutersJeroen Wouters, Program Manager Sports & Nutrition at InnoSportNL. InnoSportNL has developed several practical nutrition concepts from innovation performance contracts (IPC) with business partners. Jeroen works closely with Wageningen University and Food Valley and will explain the activities of Eat2Move. When you combine nutrition, science and industry together in a practical collaboration, you can develop food that has not only functional value in sports, but – because of that value – is very suitable for healthcare and the “ordinary” consumer.

Erik te VelthuisChef Erik te Velthuis, Manager Topsportrestaurant Papendal will serve six small courses for dinner, explaining each dish with a small presentation. “Prerequisite for our dishes is, that the food should be purely tasty, but of course we also serve it with a function. The dishes are developed from a top-level sport perspective, but offer a versatility of applications for healthcare and healthy meals at home.”

Maria HopmanMaria Hopman, Professor Integrative Physiology at RadboudUMC. Her research is best summarized by the theme Healthy Aging or Preventive Medicine. The overall goal of her research is to improve ‘health’ and to understand the concept of ‘vitality’ of individuals as they age from conception to decease, by unraveling the mechanisms that explain the relationship between inactivity and the development of chronic diseases as well as exercise and health.

Target group:
R&D managers, product and business development managers, application and process technologists.
