ECNP's independent Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) composes the programme of the 29th ECNP Congress with the intention of providing participants with high-quality, balanced and educational content across the field of applied and translational neuroscience.

ECNP has taken great care to respond to the need of physicians to participate in continuing medical education (CME) programmes recognised by the European Union and their home countries. The programme of the 29th ECNP Congress is accordingly fully accredited by the relevant accrediting agencies.
