ECNP Congresses


The annual ECNP Congress is Europe’s largest meeting in applied and translational neuroscience.

Held every autumn, the ECNP Congress brings together psychiatrists, neuroscientists, neurologists and psychologists from around the world to discuss the latest developments in the science and treatment of brain disorders. With around 6,000 participants, the ECNP Congress is Europe’s premier showcase for new research, treatments and technologies in applied brain science. Spanning the spectrum of human mood, behaviour, cognition and emotion, from basic science to clinical care, the ECNP Congress brings you the best in CNS innovation.

The ECNP Congress is for everyone with an interest in:

  • Treatment research in psychiatry, neurology and psychology
  • Mental health care
  • Discoveries in neuroscience and neurobiology
  • The latest developments in industry innovation
  • Public policy and regulation
  • Patient issues

Religious festivals
In scheduling the ECNP Congress, ECNP takes account of the religious festivals of all the major European faiths. However, because not all dates are always available to us, overlaps are very occasionally unavoidable. In these situations we make great efforts to ensure that the overlap – and any inconvenience to our participants – is as minimal as possible.
