Symposium ‘Personalized Food’. Tuesday, Jan. 28th, 2020: Science Park Amsterdam

Do we need personal chef-cooks to overcome Crohn’s – disease?  Or a special Colitis – Hello Fresh – box?

Can we influence ‘Happy Aging’ by adjusting the taste and texture of products? And what about behavior and food uptake in cities? How to create a healthy environment for adolescents? How to use smart data from client cards for personalized food? Do feces-transplantations really change the behavior of people?


This day we will start with co-creation on four topics in separate rooms. For each topic, specialists from different background, disciplines and functional roles have been invited to share their view, expertise and ideas on the following topics:


Morning program 9.30-12h:

Table 1: Food for happy aging (Feike van der Leij, Inholland).

Table 2: Food and adolescent food consumption (Elise Gieling, AERES Almere).

Table 3: Food for control of Crohn disease (Johan van Limbergen, AMC).

Table 4: Food, smart data and sustainability (Sigrid Wertheim-Heck, WUR-Aeres).


There are still some positions open for attending the table discussion (please contact Roos van Maanen).
