LIA-CNRS "FOOD, CULTURES AND HEALTH"

In May 2015, an application was made by Taylor’s University (TU - Malaysia) and University Toulouse - Jean Jaurès (UT2J - France) to establish an LIA under the auspice of CNRS (the French National Scientific Research Organization). In December 2015 a positive response was received from CNRS to support LIA for a period of four years (2016-2019).  LIA will be coordinated jointly by Professor Dr. Jean-Pierre Poulain, a Sociologist (UT2J; ISTHIA; CERTOP) and Emeritus Professor Dr. Mohd Ismail Noor, a Nutritionist (TU; CRI-FNPH; CRiT), during the four years’ period.
