April 10, 2013

The CGIAR Science Forum, a biennial meeting organized by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) Consortium that brings together scientists, practitioners, experts, and leading thinkers, will examine emerging challenges and recent scientific advances in the areas of nutrition, health, and agriculture for this year's meeting.

Exploring the nexus of agriculture, nutrition, and health, the meeting will seek to agree on the research needs and identify new scientific approaches and partnerships through which the agricultural community can add most value to the delivery of nutrition and health outcomes. To be held in Bonn, Germany from September 23-25, 2013, the Science Forum is organized by the Independent Science and Partnership Council (ISPC), on behalf of CGIAR.
