ECN webinars 2020 / NuGO ECN- Communicating your research to a new generation of scientists
Last post by Kat Burton -
In a special NuGO ECN webinar, we introduce the recently announced ECN initiative to create a nutrigenomics collection for the unique journal, Frontiers for Young Minds.

This open-access journal of Frontiers whose target audience is 8-15 year olds, it is written by scientists but reviewed by young people! In the nutrigenomics collection that we propose, we want to share the best of the latest advances in nutrigenomic science to a new generation of young scientists and test our communication skills at the same time.

Please find below the link to the recording of our recent webinar that gives an introduction of the NuGO ECN- Frontiers for Young Minds initiative that aims to bring the latest advances in nutrigenomic science to children and young people :
