31st ECNP Congress Barcelona

Will you join us in Barcelona?

We are very excited to welcome you at the 31st ECNP Congress!

Where: Barcelona, Spain
When: 6-9 October 2018

With less than five months to go, the preparations are in full swing to organise a great congress for you.

This year, we received over 1200 abstracts which are currently going through the review process for publication and presentation at the congress.
Most of the sessions of the scientific programme have already been published, covering a wide range of topics.

What’s new this year?
This year, we have alternative sessions with new formats where a hot topic or important new area is shared in an interactive way. 

All the sessions are listed along with an outline in our scientific programme.

Don't forget that the ECNP Congress provides full-service childcare at the venue throughout the congress.

Stay updated with congress related information through our website.

ECNP School: A grand success

Once again this year, the ECNP School of Child and Adolescent Neuropsychopharmacology took place in Venice, Italy, on 8-13 April 2018. 

ECNP provided a unique opportunity to 47 participants to interact with an international faculty of experts in basic and clinical paediatric neuropsychopharmacology, over a span of one week.

Feedback from the participants included: “The program was comprehensive, very interesting topics, and the lectures were inspirational.” “A great opportunity to meet child and adolescent psychiatrists from across Europe.” “Very useful for my daily practice.”

Group photo Seminar Odessa

ECNP Seminar in Odessa, Ukraine

We had another successful ECNP Seminar in Neuropsychopharmacology on 20-22 April 2018 in Odessa, Ukraine. Every year, ECNP organises a number of seminars to provide an interactive training course for future national leaders in neuropsychopharmacology.

The ECNP Seminar is intended for European countries whose researchers and practitioners have limited opportunities to attend international meetings. 

The seminar was a huge success with local and international experts coming together with 44 local early career scientists to create an enriching learning environment. The feedback from the participants was excellent who saw it as a platform to 'exchange ideas, share experiences and establish connections.'

We would like to congratulate Anton Gorodokin for winning the Seminar Award.

Next ECNP Seminar
The next ECNP Seminar will take place on 16-18 November 2018 in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
