Purpose and goals
The Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) is ECNP’s scientific sounding board, providing guidance and content advice in ECNP’s key areas of scientific focus in disorders, interventions and methods.

80 members covering a variety of topics, with a combination of senior and promising early career scientists.

The SAP mandate is to:

  • Review the abstracts for poster presentation in April-May.
  • Review the congress programme in July-August.
  • Provide specific advice to the Scientific Programme Committee when requested.
  • Serve as session chairs during a congress, if needed.

Time commitment
Responsibilities are focused on abstract review in April-May every year (60 abstracts per person maximum). Members also review the programme for the congress and give their comments.

In return, SAP members receive free registration to the ECNP Congress.
