Welcome to EUSARF 2020, Zurich, Switzerland

1 – 4 September 2020

It is with great pleasure that the ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences will be hosting the XVI European Scientific Association on Residential & Family Care for Children and Adolescents (EUSARF) Conference in ZURICH, from 1 – 4 September 2020.

The Organizing Committee and the EUSARF Committee Board are looking forward to an exciting conference. We welcome you to join!

Zurich, the largest city in Switzerland – located in the heart of Europe – offers an excellent setting for the EUSARF conference 2020. The city is not only known as the country’s economic and cultural hub, but also for its famous old town, the beautiful lake and the magnificent mountain view, making it also a charming and fascinating place for tourists and visitors.

Acknowledging and understanding “The perspective of the child” in practice and research in the area of child and youth welfare has become a core issue for advancing social work.
The challenges and opportunities that arise from this fundamental task are the focus of the XVI international EUSARF Conference.

The EUSARF 2020 Conference is organized in partnership with Amt für Jugend und Berufsberatung (AJB) Kanton Zürich, PACH and INTEGRAS.
