University of Navarra

Spain

The University of Navarra began operating in Pamplona in 1952 as a result of the initiative of St. Josemaría Escrivá de Balaguer, the founder of Opus Dei. The core mission is to seek and present the truth; contribute to the academic, cultural and personal education of its students; promote academic research and healthcare activities; provide suitable opportunities for the development of its professors and employees; and carry out broad cultural outreach and social promotion work with a clear goal of service.

The University of Navarra has currently around 13200 students enrolled in different studies distributed over six campuses (Pamplona, San Sebastian, Madrid, Barcelona, Munich, New York and Sao Paulo), all with state-of-the-art facilities. More than 29% of the students are international. Our university offers 37 degrees and 14 double degrees (of them 10 are bilingual degrees), 42 master’s degrees, and 19 doctoral programs.

The University’s academic staff members combine teaching with research. Thus, as well as fostering social progress, the results of the research carried out at the University directly contribute to students’ learning.

The School of Medicine of the University of Navarra prepares professionals with a solid scientific and technical training based on the respect for human rights, the dignity of the sick person and his family, all of this with social concern. Since 1954, the School of Medicine has consolidated and supported its inseparable union with the Clínica Universidad de Navarra with two venues (Pamplona y Madrid), the first center in Spain to be accredited by the Joint International Commission as a university hospital, and the Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA).

The University of Navarra has been praised in rankings for various elements to the school, namely, 2nd best Spanish University (CYD Ranking); 1st Spanish University in research impact and international focus (Times Higher Education Ranking) and 37th Worlwide University in employability (Times Higher Education Ranking)

European Food Information Council (EUFIC)

Belgium

The European Food Information Council (EUFIC) is a consumer-oriented non-profit organisation, founded to make the science behind food and health more accessible and easier to understand among the public. Their mission is to produce science-based content to inspire and empower healthier and more sustainable diets and lifestyles among European citizens. All their content and resources – advice on healthy nutrition and lifestyle, actionable content on food safety and sustainability, and guidance on how to assess claims about food and health in the media – are derived from peer reviewed science and authoritative bodies such as the WHO, FAO and European authorities.

For over 2 decades, EUFIC have been working as part of consortia funded by the European Commission framework programmes and have long-standing collaborations with organisations such as the European Federation of Associations of Dietitians (EFAD), the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) or The Need For Nutrition Education/Innovation Programme (NNEdPro).

To increase the reach of resources, EUFIC engages with media and social media influencers and build partnerships with leading organisations at national and international levels, allowing them to broaden their reach beyond directly engaging with consumers, enabling multiplier effects from health practitioners, nutritionists, dietitians, educators and other health care workers who apply the materials and trainings in their daily business.
