The Summer Academy in Global Food Law & Policy is an established one-week summer programme that brings together practitioners, policymakers, industry representatives and leading academics working in the field of food law and policy. It offers intensive training on the most innovative developments in global food regulation and provides a unique opportunity for professional development and networking in an informal and inter-disciplinary setting. By talking, studying and interacting with food experts from all over the world, participants are able to gain new perspectives into both their own sectors and international regulatory issues. This is achieved by combining traditional classroom instruction with experiential learning opportunities offered by dedicated and distinguished international experts.
The Academy will take place from Monday, 18 July, to Friday, 22 July, 2016 in Bilbao, Spain. The choice of this vibrant city will enable participants to benefit from the world renowned Basque cuisine, its privileged geographical location between the Atlantic sea and the Rioja region, as well as its distinctive architectural landscapes (with the Guggenheim Museum, Norman Foster's Undergroud, the towers by Arata Isozaki and César Pelli and the Calatrava's airport).
This edition´s keynote speaker will be Professor Marion Nestle, award-winning author of Food Politics and of the newly published Soda Politics, from New York University.
The rest of the probram will be unveiled soon.
