The conference was organised by Wageningen University and took take place in the beautiful Hotel de Wageningsche Berg, in Wageningen, the Netherlands. This year’s theme for the conference was “Fit for the Future”, referring to a healthy lifestyle for a healthier future and to what the future will bring for the field of Epidemiology. The results were presented in the form of a poster including a five-minute oral presentation. They presented the search strategy that was used for finding relevant tools which collect food consumption and associated lifestyle data, and an outline of the kind of data collected about the tools such as scientific, legal and technical information and their relationship with data quality. Finally, summaries of the data collected and some preliminary conclusions about the tools scientific, legal and technical quality, were also discussed. The presentation was a full success since the work presented was perceived as very interesting and relevant by members of the community of epidemiologists.
