MANNO, SwitzerlandThe Council for Responsible Nutrition-International (CRN-I) has made eight translations of the abstracts from its four annual scientific symposium proceedings available for free on its website. Since 2010, CRN-I has held an annual scientific symposium every year with the proceedings published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal following the meeting. Abstracts are available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Spanish.

Griffiths, Ph.D., vice president, scientific and international affairs, CRN-I. “By providing these translations, more science and regulatory experts will have access to important science and policy discussions that affect our industry and ultimately our consumers worldwide."
