After a successful Asia edition, the World Nutrition Forum returns to Europe in 2014. The biennial Forum brings together thinkers, decision makers and opinion leaders in the animal nutrition and related fields for several days of high level debate and discussions in an event that has become synonymous with the sharing of ideas rather than products.
A decade since its debut in Salzburg in 2004, the Forum will be hosted outside Austria this year, this time in Munich. A vibrant city that is economically dynamic yet steeped in history and culture, Munich presents the perfect venue where the concept of sustainability can be revisited under an exciting and carefully planned theme — 'sustain:ability'.
In line with this, Jørgen Randers of the Norwegian Business School and co-author of 'The Limits to Growth', will present a view of the world to come in the next 40 years.
Keynote speakers for the opening day (16 October) also include Marty D. Matlock of the University of Arkansas’s Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, who will present key trends in the future of animal nutrition, and Didier Jans, secretary general of FEFANA, who will speak on the topic of worldwide regulation and harmonization.
Based on the concept of previous Forums, break-out sessions will be organized for the four target species — poultry, swine, ruminants and aquaculture. On the second day, 17 October, a top-class mycotoxin expert panel will address key research findings and the application of new technologies that will mark the industry in the upcoming years.
