As explained by prof. dr. Ludvik Toplak, President of Alma Mater Europaea - ECM, conference exceeded all the expectations. “The conference is primarily intended for students to actively participate in research and professional work. At the same time, they become acquainted with the global trends in specific academic fields. A number of the most representative academic guests have also responded to this challenge, which will inform the students and the professional public about the global contradictions in science and education and exchange experiences and practices. All this is in line with the basic principles of Alma Mater education, which are quality, relevance and rationalization. Alma Mater also follows its mission on the principles of transnationality, interdisciplinary and the building bridges between cultures and generations, especially in Central Europe. Big moral support to Alma Mater is international academic society - especially the European Academy of Sciences and Arts, as an inexhaustible source of scientific and cultural creativity.

Given that Hungary celebrates 200 years since the birth of the great doctor Semmelweis, it donated a bronze statue to one academic partner of each neighboring country – in Slovenia was chosen Alma Mater Europaea - ECM, who will hand over the monument to UKC Maribor, our first academic partner. On Friday Alma Mater will also open a permanent exhibition of European University Bridges that symbolically connect university cities in Central Europe.

The conference will feature around 400 authors with 240 scientific and professional contributions. “The articles are classified into 22 sections: Human Rights, Logotherapy and Psychotherapy, Religion, Peace and War, Block chain technologies, Humanities, Health Care, Physiotherapy, Social Gerontology, Promotion of health and quality of life, Ecoremediations, Education, Health studies and other sciences, the art of dance in the national culture, science and education, The Importance of Semmelweis Doctrine on Prevention of Infections. Some sections run in parallel due to a large number of contributions. “On Saturday, a symposium of archivists will be held, entitled Archives in the Service of Man - Man in the Service of Archives. The participants come from 18 countries: Austria, Bosnia, Burkina Faso, Finland, Greece, Croatia, Italy, China, Hungary, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Thailand, Turkey, the United States and Slovenia” said dr.
