MMM seeks academic partner for new EU Survey


We are searching for an academic partner for an EU survey on issues concerning mothers to be used as a lever for change.

Following the success of our two previous surveys conducted in the EU in 2011 and in France in 2021, we are undertaking a new Europe-wide survey to interview mothers of children aged 0-18 years.

We are looking for an academic partner to help us give mothers a free voice and highlight current good practices and existing issues regarding: maternal health care, early childhood development, a mother’s professional career path and the support of the father and the family.

We need you if:

  • You work for a recognized university or research centre and are known for your expertise on topics such as gender equality, work life balance, maternal health and Early Childhood Development
  • You are passionate about making an impact for mothers, fathers, children and society at large
  • Your want to help us identify what mothers really want and need for themselves and their children
  • You want to support us in mobilizing decision makers to ensure favourable policies are put in place

Please join us and take part in the project by:

  • Inputting your research skills to make sure the questions avoid biases
  • Validating the quality and diversity of the panel of mothers to be interviewed
  • Analyzing results and key data
  • Establishing statistics

Our intention is to make this survey available widely among European mothers as a lever for change.

For further information on the project, please contact Caroline de Senneville, MMM’s Lead on Special Campaigns and Events:
