31 August 2016 - 03 September 2016
Under the theme "Demographic Change and Policy Implications" the European Population Conference (EPC) 2016 is targeting the general scientific community in population studies. The conference will take place between 31 August - 3 September 2016 in Mainz, Germany and is organized by the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS) and the German Federal Institute for Population Research.
18 demographers from the World Population Program will be chairing sessions and present latest POP research on the links between education and issues such as quality of life, health, fertility, and the ability to adapt to climate change. As part of the Wittgenstein Centre, latest research and publications are also presented at our conference booth.
For more information to the conference please visit the official conference website.
