ECNP Congresses

Detailed information about ECNP Congresses can be found on our congress website.

The ECNP Congress is Europe's largest meeting on applied and translational neuroscience. Annually it brings together between 4,000 and 6,000 psychiatrists, neuroscientists, neurologists and psychologists from around the world to discuss the latest developments in the science and treatment of disorders of the brain.

Spanning the spectrum of human mood, behaviour, cognition and emotion – from basic science to clinical care – the ECNP Congress is Europe's premier showcase for new research, treatments and technologies in applied brain science.
