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 more than 5,000 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
