It aims to create a space for reflection and discussion that stimulates research interests, innovative approaches to midwifery care and encourages reflection on (extra-) clinical experiences and own research activities.

During the conference, research results and scientific-methodological challenges of midwifery science as well as relevant related sciences will be presented for discussion in lectures and poster presentations.
