The technical basis of i-conf and the questionnaires are developed. Thus, a tool is produced that can be used by all interested parishes and churches. In addition, parishes are directly addressed for pre-tests.

2020/2021 until 2023
Parishes using i-conf are supported in the development of confirmation work based on the local results

Through a representative random selection, chosen churches will be contacted and asked to gather feedback from the confirmands using the i-conf tool. In this way, i-conf is further implemented in practice and the surveyed data provides the basis for a third empirical study on confirmation work in Germany and Europe.

I-conf is to be transferred to permanent provision for standalone use from 2023.

The results are fed back into practice by publications, journal and practice articles as well as by contributions to conferences and advanced education.
