The National Nutrition Surveillance Centre (NNSC) is a hub for data collation, research, education and communication.
The NNSC was originally established in 1992 in the National University of Ireland, Galway with grant support from the Department of Health and Children.
The Centre moved to University College Dublin (UCD) in 2003, where it affiliated with the School of Public Health, Physiotherapy and Sports Science.
There is an advisory board to oversee the running of the Centre with external membership from the Health Promotion Unit of the Department of Health. The Centre is required by the Department of Health to provide an independent source of information and advice and has the responsibility for collection and collation of available data relating to nutrition and health.Find out more
