Welcome from the Organizing Committee

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Granada (Spain), to the 6th International Conference on Food Digestion, which will be held between the 2nd and 4th of April 2019, organized in the frame of the INFOGEST research network. This International Conference is intended for students and professional’s expertise in food digestion having a broader perspective into the multidisciplinary field of Food, Health and Nutrition. The conference will take place at the Granada Conference and Exhibition Centre, well equipped with the most advanced congress facilities, located at the heart of the city, and at walking distance to hotels and the monumental city center.

Granada is a World Heritage city declared by UNESCO. Besides the world renowned Alhambra Palace, Granada offers to visitors the beauty of their historic buildings and countless palaces, Arab town houses and gardens, being closed to the National Park of Sierra Nevada and the sunny Tropical Coast. 

Recently, Granada has been awarded City of Science and Innovation. The University of Granada, one of the oldest and most prestigious seats for learning in Spain, the Health Science Technological Park, and the presence of several research Institutes from CSIC, result in a fascinating scientific atmosphere to promote and generate knowledge through many different areas, including key aspects focused in food science, nutrition and human health. 

We hope you can enjoy not only the scientific program but also the Andalusian hospitality and the social activities we have carefully organized to offer you an unforgettable stay in the beautiful city of Granada.
