If you are passionate about promoting nutrition, food and health in Europe; if you want to inspire and motivate people; if you thrive on challenges; if you want to develop your interpersonal and communication skills; if you want to know what skills are needed to be a leader in your field then you are in the right place.
A group of nutrition professionals identified these needs of leadership
skills, communication and networking: Almost 20 years ago, they founded the
European Nutrition Leadership Platform (ENLP). Since then, almost 600 nutrition
and health professionals have been imparted with leadership and communication skills
in ENLP leadership seminars and have been connected within the ENLP network. ENLP
helps to develop networks between scientists coming from different sectors (academia
and research institutes, national and international authorities and
institutions, industry, and NGOs), which is the basis to advance science and
deliver meaningful outcomes for global nutrition and health.
The ENLP Seminar and ENLP Advanced Seminar are organised by a group of leading European nutritionists in close collaboration with major representatives from food industry and European nutrition organisations and societies. At the present time the course is organised by Wageningen University and mainly supported by Danone, Kraft Foods, Nestlé, DSM, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Unilever (see ENLP Sponsors). Since March 2007, thirteen universities and institutes, who agreed to establish a formal alliance to promote research in Food and Health in Europe (ENABLE), are partnering the industrial sponsors of ENLP through direct funding when they have candidates who are successful in the ENLP selection process.
Today, the ENLP covers everything you need to follow your passion to make a change in nutrition: from leadership training to become a good and influential leader right up to the access to a valuable and powerful network of peers.
