Global BPNR meeting on Research Innovation for Impact in Nutrition

The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), along with the Government of Canada and partners from the private sector, have created the Business Platform for Nutrition Research (BPNR) to find solutions to these complex problems and deliver impact at scale. The goal of BPNR is to find evidence-based ways to eliminate barriers to entry for development of new nutritious food and related products and to improve the quality and accessibility of nutritious food.

Please join us for a discussion on how research can bring innovation across the food system, with the specific aim of finding solutions to improve food quality, safety, and security for those most in need. The session will review the partnership-building experience from BPNR and other initiatives to identify lessons learned, challenges faced, and resources and new approaches needed for future advancement of impactful partnerships.
