The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) are co-organizing a hands-on training on individual food consumption and composition data harmonization with the FoodEx2 system. FoodEx2 allows to describe and categorize foods in a systematic way, therefore facilitating harmonization between datasets, in particular between food consumption data and food composition data.This one-day training is dedicated to data managers who are interested in sharing their consumption data through the FAO/WHO GIFT platform or harmonizing their food composition data to facilitate matching with other datasets. It will cover an introduction to FoodEx2, the main uses and basic principles for its use, followed by a necessarily short set of introductory exercises (e.g. on food composition- or food consumption-related food items).

Attendance at the training will be by invitation only. No more than 30trainees.

Date: October 14, 2017 as post 12th IFDC activity
