ECNP Junior Scientists Initiative

The future of neuropsychopharmacology in Europe relies on the field’s ability to attract and retain talented junior researchers.

ECNP is committed to ensuring that junior scientists continue to be drawn into the field and that they receive the support and professional development necessary to succeed in it.

Against this background the organisation launched the ECNP Junior Scientists Initiative.

ECNP has installed the following incentives for junior scientists:


  • ECNP Workshop for Junior Scientists in Europe
  • ECNP Workshop on Clinical Research Methods
  • ECNP Schools of:
    - Neuropsychopharmacology
    - Child and Adolescent Neuropsychopharmacology

  • Junior Scientists’ symposia incorporated in the scientific programme.
  • Career development sessions for learning practical skills.
  • An offsite evening for more informal interaction.
