DAD International Mid-term Event in Vienna -

Say Hello to DAD! - How fathers-to-be discover parenting

We invite you to participate in the International Mid-term Event in Vienna on the 5th of June 2008.

The event is scheduled right after the first successful evaluation phase of DAD within the EU-Project, which is proven by the users' feedback. DAD is experienced as “unique, very useful, of high informational value, easy and joyful to use and of high socio-political impact”.

As DAD touches many different fields, such as parenting, the father’s role in society, parental leave in Europe, baby’s health and baby’s safety we aimed for inviting international experts from these different areas to present their views and perspectives on DAD. More details can be found in the Agenda.
