In the framework of this event within the activities of “Tomorrow begins today”, consumers can interact and discuss with researchers and industry professionals. Speakers will speak for 15 minutes each, followed by a 15-minute question and answer session. This will encourage an active discussion about the future of our food, sustainability in our global time, and make our audience wonder where and why these developments are occurring. We will ask the audience to participate in a short play after the talk so that we can see how they found it and what they learned.

Mª Victoria Moreno Arribas, Doctor in Pharmacy and Senior Researcher of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) at the Institute of Food Science Research (CIAL). She is member of the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (AESAN), and Master Contact for CSIC in EIT Food. Her research is focused on the influence of food components (i.e. polyphenols) on the oral and intestinal microbiota and its genome (microbiome), considering the metabolic functionality of the microbiota and the health impact of this interaction on digestive and brain function. Dr. Moreno-Arribas has coordinated national (20) and international projects (5) and the significance of her research activity is reflected in more than 170 publications in high-rated international journals, 6 international books, communications to international conferences, 5 patent applications, as well as in collaborations with other scientists from top institutes all over the world.
