The Opening Symposium of the Amsterdam Centre for World Food Studies (ACWFS) on October 12th, 2017, will bring together a broad audience from academics, policy making, civil society, ACWFS partner organizations, and others. This occasion will mark the start of the ACWFS, an interdisciplinary institute at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam with faculties working together on food and nutrition security issues. The symposium is also an occasion to celebrate a long tradition of food and nutrition security research at the Vrije Universiteit, which started with the foundation of the Stichting Onderzoek Wereldvoedselvoorziening (SOW-VU) in 1977.

Because of limited space, the Opening Symposium is by invitation only. For more information contact info.acwfs@vu.nl
