XXXI International Conference on Polyphenols from 3rd to 6th July 2023, Congress Center, Nantes, France

Dear ICP participants,

You have been more than 330 from 40 countries attending to ICP2023-Nantes!

On behalf of the organising and scientific committees, I thank you all very much for having taken part in this 100 % face to face 31st Edition of ICP in Nantes!

The diversity and quality of the presentations at ICP have once again demonstrated the dynamism and richness of scientific research in the field of polyphenols and I hope that the conference has lived up to your expectations, both in terms of the scientific aspects and the friendly exchanges between colleagues.

We're already looking forward to ICP2025-Turku, Finland, in 2025 to renew with the polyphenol adventure! 

With my warmest regards


Dr. Sylvain Guyot

President of the Local Organising Committee
