The project Laboratorio Expo, co-financed by the Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli and Expo 2015 S.p.A., is an interdisciplinary research program aimed to develop a fruitful dialogue about cultural, anthropological, economic and social aspects related to the theme of Expo 2015 - “Feeding the planet, energy for life” - and namely to topics of social and environmental sustainability, food cultures, urban development and smart cities.

In this framework, the Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli and the Human Development Capability and Poverty International Research Centre at IUSS, Pavia have organized in Milan a two-day research workshop among a restricted group of experts on the theme of child nutrition.
While highly technical topics will be discussed during the different working sessions, the participation of a selected group of young scholars is still encouraged, in order to widen the analysis and contribute to the development of the research works. Therefore, interested doctoral students, post-docs and young researchers with interest and experience on child nutrition, growth and capabilities, are invited to submit their CVs and a motivation letter in order to take part in the workshop. The workshop language will be English
