ECNP Seminar

ECNP Seminar Virtual

On 12-13 May the Spring ECNP Seminar Virtual was held. ECNP Seminars are small-scale, interactive, live online courses on the principles and practice of neuropsychopharmacology.

The aim of ECNP Seminars is to increase the level of knowledge and skills of researchers and practitioners in the field, in locations where limited opportunities exist to attend international meetings.

We thank Gil Zalsman, Avi Avital and Carmen Moreno for making it such a sucessful event - as well as the Seminar participants. 

The next ECNP Seminar will be on 1-2 December 2022. Application will open in August 2022.
