MMM has been a partner in a project initiated by the Research DG of the European Commission. Its aim was to make an up-to-date inventory and evaluation of family research in the 27 member states.

The Family Platform project

Research platform on families and family policies:
FAMILYPLATFORM-Policy-Brief-06-2011

The final report, released in the spring of 2011, identifies key research topics whose results will serve as a basis for developing new European policies that impact families.

He answers the question: “How can European policies and those of the Member States improve the well-being of families in the long term? ”

It was a wonderful opportunity to make the voices of mothers heard at the European level and to have a real impact on future European policies that affect families.

Report “Mother’s Realities in Europe”

Among other tasks, MMM Europe has been given a report on the situation of mothers in Europe, their reality, their priorities, their difficulties and their needs. As part of the development of this report, MMM Europe launched “The Mothers’ Survey in Europe” to speak with confidence and truth on behalf of mothers in Europe.
