Improving Health Properties of Food by Sharing our Knowledge on the Digestive Process

Budapest • March 2014

The INFOGEST Cost Action is organising a second training school for PhD students from the European institutions participating in the network. It will be held at the Food Science Institute, Budapest, Hungary; between 24th and 28th March 2014.

Logo Food Science Institute, Budapest, Hungary

The training school is entitled “Food Digestion and Human Health” and will comprise a series of lectures on the following topics presented by senior participants of the INFOGEST network:

  • Food structure/processing,
  • Food structure vs. nutrients bioavailability,
  • Digestion (in vitro, in silico, modelling),
  • Transport of nutrients in the gut (diffusion, absorption),
  • Nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics,
  • Plant proteins in nutrition: risks and benefits,
  • Food – gut immune system interplay,
  • Food allergy,
  • Food – gut microbiota interactions.

Places are limited. Therefore, we encourage students that are interested in participating to apply individually using the application form template. The information provided in the form should be brief (please do not use more than ONE A4-size page). The applications should be emailed to the training co-ordinator, Dr Adam Macierzanka (, by 26th January 2014. Participants will be selected by 1st February 2014, using the following criteria:

  • Relevance of the current (and future) PhD research work of the applicants,
  • Progression of PhD (i.e. early-stage PhD students rather than those who are finishing their PhD; final-year undergraduate students may also apply if they intend to continue their education as PhD students in the relevant areas),
  • Up to 2-3 students per a country participating in the INFOGEST network.

Accommodation/transport/meals etc.

The associated costs of accommodation, travel and meals will be reimbursed to the students after the training. The fixed amount of 700€ will be reimbursed per a trainee.

The training school co-ordinator: Dr Adam Macierzanka, Institute of Food Research, Norwich, United Kingdom; Agrocampus Ouest, INRA, Rennes, France.
