ECNP Congress

The annual ECNP Congress is Europe’s premier scientific meeting for disease-oriented brain research, attracting neuroscientists, psychiatrists and neurologists from around the world.
ECNP is an independent scientific association dedicated to the science and treatment of disorders of the brain. It is the largest non-institutional supporter of applied and translational neuroscience research and education in Europe. Read more

Covid-19 and the Congress

The organisation of the 33rd ECNP is going on as planned. We are closely monitoring the coronavirus situation as it unfolds across Europe, and will bring you updates as we have them.

Cancellation of registration, with a refund, is possible right up to 1 August (minus the administration fee). More info here.

The ECNP Office, due to the current situation, is now working from home. Since we cannot always answer your call, we kindly ask you to communicate through e-mail.

Beware of fake and misleading websites and e-mails

Please be aware that there are several commercial registration and hotel booking companies, entirely independent to ECNP, who create fake and misleading websites, offering registration and hotel rooms for the ECNP Congress. Some companies also try to actively sell registration or hotel accommodation by phone. These organisations are not linked to ECNP and are using our name and /or logo without authorisation.
