ECNP Seminars Virtual

ECNP SeminarECNP Seminars are small-scale, interactive, online training courses on the principles and practice of neuropsychopharmacology. The aim of ECNP Seminars is to increase the level of knowledge and skills of researchers and practitioners in the field in locations where limited opportunities exist to attend international meetings.

ECNP Seminars offer participants the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills under the guidance of three experts. For each Seminar, the maximum number of participants is 30.

Per year two ECNP Seminars are organised. This year the dates of the ECNP Seminars are:

ECNP Seminar 1-2 December 2022

The programme of the Seminar Fall 2022 (1-2 December) can be found here.

To prepare for the Seminar, participants will be asked to watch a number of pre-recorded lecture videos. During the Seminar participants and faculty come together virtually to discuss these lectures and discuss their own research.
