ECNP Congress

The annual ECNP Congress is Europe’s premier scientific meeting for disease-oriented brain research, annually attracting between 4,000 and 6,000 neuroscientists, psychiatrists and neurologists from around the world.

ECNP is an independent scientific association dedicated to the science and treatment of disorders of the brain. It is the largest non-institutional supporter of applied and translational neuroscience research and education in Europe. View website.

Besides the congress, ECNP organises a wide range of scientific and educational activities, programmes and events across Europe, promoting the exchange of high-quality experimental and clinical research in applied and translational neuroscience and fostering young scientists and clinicians. View agenda.
