ECNP Seminars Virtual

ECNP SeminarECNP Seminars are small-scale, two-day interactive training courses in neuropsychopharmacology. The aim of ECNP Seminars is to increase the level of knowledge of and skills of future leading researchers and practitioners with a proven interest in the field of neuropsychopharmacology in locations where limited opportunities exist to attend international meetings.

ECNP Seminars offer participants the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in a concentrated learning environment under the guidance of three local and three non-local experts.

Each ECNP Seminar is focused on a particular country or region, and are organised for a maximum of 50 participants from that country/region. Participants are selected on the basis of their curriculum vitae and a short abstract (50-100 words). Two participants of each ECNP Seminar are awarded with an ECNP Seminar Award, consisting of free registration and a subsidy towards travel cost for the upcoming ECNP Congress (to be paid after the congress), on the condition that his/her abstract is submitted for poster presentation at the congress and that the abstract is accepted.

Each year, a maximum of four ECNP Seminars are organised by a local coordinator, with the support of the ECNP Office and the ECNP Seminar coordinator. If you are interested in organising an ECNP Seminar in your country, please find the guidelines and application form here.

In 2020 we had to postpone the ECNP Seminars due to the COVID-19 situation and restrictions. The ECNP office and the ECNP Seminar coordinator made a new virtual format starting in February 2021. It includes pre-recorded lectures, lecture discussions and clinical case sessions.
