Annual Meeting 2021


"Grüezi" and a warm welcome to the 3rd Annual Meeting of the Swiss Society Early Childhood Research. This years theme of the conference is "#comebackstronger" and will be held in Zurich at the HfH (Interkantonale Hochschule für Heilpädagogik) on November 23th and 24th, 2021.

This year's meeting will be jointly organised by the University of Applied Sciences in Special Needs Education (HfH), the Zurich University of Teacher Education, the University Children's Hospital Zurich, the Marie Meierhofer Children's Institute, and the University of Zurich.

We will be holding a one and a half day event. The meeting will start with a half-day preconference on 23 November 2021. This preconference includes the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas in Special Interest Groups. This year’s preconference will be jointly organized by the Alliance Enfance, the Perinatal Research Special Interest Group and the Junior Researcher Network. The preconference ends with a keynote address by Oskar Jenni and a moderated roundtable discussion with Flavia Wasserfallen, Simon Sommer, Benjamin Roduit and Andrea Lanfranchi. This will be followed by an Apéro.  

On the second day, our annual scientific meeting of the SSECR will take place. The aim of the interdisciplinary conference is to bring together researchers from various disciplines of early childhood research. Given the current challenges caused by the pandemic, we chose the optimistic motto "#comebackstronger" for this year’s annual meeting. The scientific meeting features keynote addresses by the highly distinguished researchers Lieselotte Ahnert and Daniel Schechter, as well as a wide variety of oral and poster presentations by early childhood researchers.

With kind regards on behalf of the Organizing Committee of the Annual Meeting
