Feed the Future Innovation Lab is pleased to announce the next Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition Scientific Symposium: ‘Food, Diets & Nutrition: 25 Years of Progress and a Vision for Nepal’. The event will be held on November 27-29, 2018 at Hotel Yak & Yeti in Kathmandu. This annual knowledge sharing event has gained tremendous momentum over the years and has allowed for the sharing of findings from agriculture – nutrition research relevant to Nepal. A diverse audience of academia, policy makers, program implementers and students provide for  an enriching and stimulating environment for those eager to learn and translate research into policy and practice.
