The Berlin congress is rapidly approaching! We are finalising the last bits and pieces to make this a fabulous congress once again…

Congress app
Our ECNP 2014 congress app is now available for free download for Apple and Android. Download this app well before the congress, so you can already browse through all the information and make your own congress schedule via ‘My Congress’.
