Food and nutrition are key determinants of our overall health status; and poor nutrition and lifestyle choices contribute significantly to chronic disease risk. In today’s world, the food system has multiple players across the entire food chain with government, academia, industry and the general public working together to bring food to our tables. Science and technology are critical to make our food supply safe, sustainable, and nutritious. Scientists need to work with both government and industry to ensure sustainable diets are possible. However, criticisms are sometimes levied on industry collaboration with governments, questioning the integrity of the science being undertaken.

The International Life Sciences Institute Southeast Asia (ILSI SEA) Region hosted a virtual 2.5hr-workshop with key experts working on the important topic of Science and Research Integrity on June 24, 2021, with particular focus on issues facing scientists in Southeast Asia. This webinar obtained views and perspectives from experts working on guiding integrity standards in science and research, provided an overview of current efforts in the SEA Region to support scientific integrity in food and nutrition research, and facilitated the development of a regional network for supporting Scientific Integrity in science research and public health programs.
