Innonets Living Lab on 17 June: “Wellness begins at the table”

The Polytechnic of Bari will organize on 17 June 2020 (h. 16.00) the first Living Lab within InnoNets project, which aims to promote the agro-food sector between Puglia Region and the Region of Ionian Islands.

The first meeting focuses on the theme “Wellness begins at the table” and wants to highlight the role of food as a link between promoting human health and mitigating the ecological footprint of our societies on the planet.

The initiative is aligned with the general awareness of the role that the food has in the social sustainable development, human health and adaptation to global change. The recent approval of the “Farm-to-Fork” strategy by the European Commission, and the Green Deal confirm the strong interest of Europe for this growth path.

Antonio Moschetta, researcher at the University of Bari “Aldo Moro”, Aida Turrini, researcher, Council for Agricultural Research and Analysis of Agricultural Economics (CREA), Food and Nutrition Centre (Rome), Caterina Renna, medical psychiatrist, head of the Centre for treatment and research on eating disorders (ASL Lecce); Edoardo Altomare, doctor, head of the Special Operations Unit “Training” (ASL Bari).
