At IPC leading scientists from industry and academia present current advances in understanding and influencing the interaction between gut microbiota and human health. The goal of conference is to provide a scientific forum for all stakeholders of probiotics, prebiotics and gut health and to enable the interactive exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge. The conference is focused on evidence-based benefits, health claims proven in scientific experiments and clinical trials.

New scientific evidences that support or question the efficiency of already existing or prospective substances and applications will be conferred. In addition novel strains, controversial but scientifically solid ideas, approaches and visions will be presented as well.

Further to its scientific content, IPC2018 is a networking event. It is a unique opportunity to meet all the stakeholders of probiotics, prebiotics and gut health.

Participants will meet those who influenced the past, influence the present and most importantly will shape the future of probiotics and prebiotics by means of basic research, clinical trials, regulatory efforts or development of industrial technology. Initiation of cross-boarder co-operations between scientists and institutions will be also facilitated.
