Every year SNS organizes seminars for national experts and students on actual topics and every four years a congress on nutrition. Last three years SNS, together with the Federation of European Nutrition Sciences (FENS), successfully organized summer schools for young Ph students. SNS has been elected to be a host of the next, 14th FENS’ European Conference on Nutrition, in Belgrade 2023.

Belgrade is the capital of Serbia situated at the confluence of the rivers Sava and the Danube. Many tribes and nations have lived there. Celts have called their settlement Singidunum, but the Slavs named it a White City/Beograd. It is an important crossroad of routes leading from Western and Eastern Europe and towards Athens and Istanbul. Belgrade is also an important educational center. University of Belgrade is on Shanghai ranking list one of the 500 most valuable universities in the world. It is also a cultural center with interesting museums, theaters, art festivals, but also a gastronomical surprise with a lot of restaurants with traditional cuisine and music.

Dear Congress participants, regarding epidemic circumstances, the Congress will be organized on line, or as a hybrid one. The final decision will be brought at August 20th, 2021 and the information will be available on the Congress website.
