International Yakult Symposium

For many years the European Yakult Science Teams have organised a two-day international conference, hosted in various European cities, for healthcare professionals, students, and researchers exploring the latest research on probiotics, gut microbiota and health by experts in the field.  

The symposium provides a great opportunity for attendees to engage in scientific debate, and network with experts and colleagues in this extremely interesting field of microorganims and health.


IYS2018 was held in Ghent on 18th - 19th April. A report of the symposium is available here. The next symposium is scheduled to be in Italy, 2020.
