Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, we are very proud to host the NUTS2020 conference in Reus, Spain.

NUTS2020, taking place in June 2020, was designed as an international conference to serve as an inflection point in nuts' and dried fruits' research. It is motivated by the increasing number of research regarding the beneficial effects of nuts and dried fruits and the need for a stop along the way to think about the conference's catchword "where we are and where we are going in research".

We have more than enough data to prove and show the beneficial effects of nuts and dried fruits on different cardiometabolic conditions. However, it is now time to summarize and make interact all this evidence in order to generate synergies and properly try to modify health claims and guidelines that include both nuts and dried fruit consumption.

NUTS2020 is a unique space to share the past, present, and future of nuts' and dried fruits' research.

We welcome all of you to be part of it.

Jordi Salas-Salvadó
Chairman of the NUTS2020 Conference
