The 4th International Conference provides a framework for professional exchange and networking of midwives in the European community. Therefore, we welcome contributions on research projects, educational programmes and their evaluation, as well as practice/model projects within the realm of midwifery. We are most interested in your contributions as in Germany, where since 2008 only a few universities of applied sciences offered Bachelor degree programmes, midwifery education will be offered nationally on an academic level (only), starting in 2020.

The conference's keynote speaker is Professor Cecily Begley from Ireland, who will share her many years of experience with bachelor and master degree study programmes, nationally and overseas. She holds the Chair of Nursing and Midwifery in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.

Please note: The conference will be conducted in English and German. All oral presentations will be simultaneously translated from German into English and from English into German. Presentations and poster presentations may be held in English or German.

The conference venue is the Katholische Hochschule Mainz (Catholic University of Applied Sciences Mainz) in D-55122 Mainz (Germany), which is close to the city of Frankfurt/Main and Frankfurt airport.

Any person needing assistance (e.g. to figure out your bearings) during her/his stay in Germany will be assisted by a buddy.
