Who’s controlling the controllers?

A case of ‘#fake science’ spread by #food controlling authorities for economic and political reasons.

How can we aspire to a more balanced #foodsystem while the main player, the #consumer, is mislead by the same sources that should build #trust?

How can we create an ‘informed consumer’ and help him making more rationale purchasing choices?

Conference – Expo Milan – Food and Agricultural Markets Instability: Policies and Regulation Perspectives

I am pleased to signal you to the upcoming conference titled “Food and Agricultural Markets Instability: Policies and Regulation Perspectives” during Expo Milan 2015.

The conference is jointly organised by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre,  Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore and the 7th Framework Programme Project ULYSSES (Understanding and coping with food markets volatility towards more stable World and EU food systems).

The conference is part of the activities promoted by the Scientific Committee for Expo 2015 and the European Union, in which all the Milan Universities are actively involved. During the conference, international experts will discuss how food and agricultural markets can become more stable, and what policies and regulatory frameworks should be implemented to make world food systems more efficient, sustainable and predictable.
The conference will take place at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (Room Pio XI, Largo Gemelli 1, Milan) on July 9, and at the EU Pavilion at Expo – Room Europa on  July 10.

The final confirmation of participation for those who request an invitation for July 10, guarantees a Free Expo Entry ticket for the work session that will be held at the EU Pavilion in Expo.
