20 Conclusions Nutritional training, exchange of information and cooperation with European projects, networks, UN organizations and research nutrition institutions are excellent opportunities for CD The NCDNCEE was a source of new scientific knowledge in nutrition, a tool to foster regional involvement and identify needs and opportunities in regional CD CENM play important role in nutritional research in the CEE region Further attention should be given to such activities, as well as to funding initiatives from other sources
