Registration Now Open for the CRN-International 2018 Symposium
—Global experts to meet in Berlin in conjunction with
CCNFSDU meeting—

Washington, D.C., September 4, 2018—The Council for Responsible Nutrition-International (CRN-I), the international arm of the U.S.-based Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), today announced its annual scientific symposium will be held the afternoon of Sunday, November 25, at the H4 Hotel Berlin Alexanderplatz, just prior to the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU) meeting. A reception will follow.

The CRN-I science-based symposium, now in its ninth year, brings together presenters and stakeholders from international delegations and is highly regarded in the global scientific and regulatory communities. This year’s event is titled “Nutrition interventions for healthy ageing across the lifespan” and discussions will build on the concepts explored over the history of CRN-I's symposia series, focusing on nutrition-related opportunities to improve global public health and supporting science-based policymaking among member countries of the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

Reports from past CRN-I symposia are published in the European Journal of Nutrition(2011–2017) and in Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology (2010), with translations in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish, available on the CRN-I website.

Registration for the CRN-I 2018 symposium and reception is complimentary for all Codex official country delegations and is available for a small fee to industry executives (CRN-I members receive one registration at no charge). For more information, visit the CRN-I website:
