On behalf of the NNFM Steering Committee I am proud and delighted to welcome you to Kaunas for the 7th Nordic and Baltic countries network meeting for fetal medicine specialists, midwives, geneticists, pathologists and neonatal surgeons. This is the first time that our meeting has visited the Baltic states and you can be sure that we intend to make your visit to Kaunas and experiences here at the meeting memorable and valuable both scientifically and socially.

Our scientific committee feel confident that we have chosen for our programme the very best and relevant presentations in the field of fetal and maternal medicine. I am also very pleased to announce that we have invited speakers and chairs who are experts in their own work and offering insights into their special topics. The strength of the meeting is networking, sharing practices and looking forward in clinical and research future perspectives.

In the context of the meeting, we would like to show local flavour in our social programme as Kaunas is famous for its Interwar architecture which was awarded the European Heritage label and is on its way to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

According to The Guardian, Kaunas is a surprising hotspot for art deco. In 2015 Kaunas was granted the sign of European heritage and included into the list of UNESCO design cities. Nowadays – this is an exceptional inheritance, witnessing the golden period of flourishment of the city, when Kaunas as a historical capital of Lithuania developed its modernistic architecture in parallel with other European cities. 
In Lithuania, modernistic architecture developed into its own specific form and is therefore called the Kaunas school of architecture.
Do not miss a chance to visit the most important objects in the interwar period – Kaunas Garrison Officer's Club, Christ's Resurrection Church, Vytautas the Great War Museum and many more.

Even if you are not a basketball lover, you will have a wonderful experience there. The atmosphere is incredible. Basketball is of an exceptional importance for Lithuanian people. The basketball club ZALGIRIS from Kaunas is the oldest and the most successful men's basketball club in Lithuania. Arvydas Sabonis, the brightest basketball star in Lithuania, played for ZALGIRIS team. The first official basketball game in Kaunas was held in 1922. Kaunas Sports Hall was built in 1939.

If you think Lithuania is somewhere in South America, think again. If your eyes are fixed on a map of the Balkans, press another key on your keyboard. So where is Lithuania located? The lyrics of one of Lithuanian songs say it’s in the middle of Europe – and indeed, those are not just song lyrics. Using the method of gravitational centres, researchers at the National Institute of Geographic and Forest Information in France established that the geographical centre of Europe is in fact found in Lithuania. The nation is only a few hours by plane from other European capitals and can also easily be reached by coach, train or even boat. So welcome to this country of Northern Europe, to the very centre of Europe… to Lithuania. More information: Lithuania Travel.
