Die Zukunft der Elternschaft – The future of parenthood

Eine Veranstaltung der Universitätsklinik für Frauenheilkunde und des Josephinums


Bringing Austrian Reproductive Medicine into dialogue with international developments & debates


The Austrian Reproductive Medicine Act of 1992 was significantly changed by the 2015 amendment and has aimed to take the medical/technological possibilities and the societal changes into consideration. This international interdisciplinary workshop takes stock and addresses these transformations in Austria and beyond:


Did they actually make progress? How will it go on? Has Carl Djerassi’s statement, that we are living in an age, when sexuality is increasingly separated from reproduction, become reality? What signifies the situation in Europe, where in each country we have a different legal solution to the urgent questions of reproductive medicine? And finally, what are the cornerstones of the international debate concerning the future of parenthood?


These questions will be explored in different formats including a keynote lecture, two panel-sessions and a concluding panel discussion (with a focus on the Aus- trian situation) in German on the first day, followed by two panel-sessions focusing on the international debate within the UNESCO and rare diseases on the second day.


This workshop is organized by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology/ Medical University of Vienna, the UNESCO Chair of Bioethics, the Josephinum, Ethics, Collections and History of Medicine at the Medical University of Vienna, the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases and the Austrian Commission for UNESCO.
