Research and Training

ZIEL fosters interdisciplinary research and supports young scientists at the interface of food, nutrition sciences and medicine. Collaborative research facilitates the dynamic interplay of established research groups and post-graduate training.

Translation into Society

A number of ZIEL activities are designed to translate scientific knowledge into the society aiming to reach societal communicators and stakeholders such as journalists, political advisors, industry as well as medical professions.


The ZIEL Academy offers a further training programme that takes current developments and findings in the field of nutritional and food research as its starting point. Events 2015
