On Friday, May 8, 2015, the international dialogue sessions at EXPO started with an interesting conference on “Towards a Research Agenda for Global Food and Nutrition Security” (see program). This conference was based on a paper co-drafted by Professor von Braun, who is a member of the EXPO's scientific steering committee.
