[Source: Research & Innovation] This one‐day event promises to be an exciting and informative day in which the implications of new research data on dietary requirements for vitamin D during childhood, adolescence and pregnancy and in dark-skinned adults residing in northern Europe will be discussed. ODIN researchers will present their latest research findings and there will be contributions from invited speakers. Please find the preliminary agenda for the day attached. The objectives of the symposium are: 1. To share new data on dietary requirements for vitamin D in Europe using dose-response randomized controlled trials in targeted population groups. 2. To gather decision makers together to discuss potential implications for food and nutrition policy. 3. To provide a forum for discussion, feedback and dialogue in relation to how research can address outstanding research bottlenecks. ODIN is an EC-funded project focusing on food-based solutions for optimal vitamin D nutrition and health throughout the lifecycle. The ODIN Project (http://ift.tt/1Dce8gB) is in the final year of a 4-year programme of research and involves a multidisciplinary consortium of 30 partners from 18 countries.
