Annual NUTRIM symposium 2020

Annual Nutrim Symposium 2020 - Is science just an opinion?

The debate over facts and so-called ‘alternative truths’ is ongoing in society, but also in science. Scientists tend to be much more skeptical about ‘truths’, because in evidenced-based reasoning even undisputed facts are constantly put forwards for open debate. The free expression of opinion, a free and accessible press and the freedom of research, guarantees the debate needed to argue the evidence for scientific knowledge. Still, many people do not merely invent facts, but also feel the need to spread them. Deliberate disinformation has become a means of controlling politics and public opinion. As a result, scientific knowledge is often put aside by the public as ‘just an opinion’. Should scientist care and act now?

On the 18th of November we will have our annual NUTRIM symposium!
Due to COVID19 regulations, it is no longer possible to organize this meeting on site and therefore we will go fully online!
We will offer pre-recorded lectures between 8.00 and 15.30 hours, followed by a live stream between 15.30 and 17.00 hours.

The whole programme will be available at:  (under construction).
