EPP symposium Network analyses December, 3-4, 2020
EPP Symposium

Recently, the gravitation program, the largest Dutch research-funding scheme, has been awarded to a consortium including several senior members of the EPP research school. In this project, researchers will use a network approach to better understand the onset and treatment of mental disorders. Such an approach goes beyond the exclusive focus on the mean level of symptoms or categorical syndrome definitions arising from a cluster of several co-occurring symptoms, but rather focuses on the relation between individual symptoms from one time point to another, as well their dynamic interactions (e.g., short-term dynamics and unique associations).

For this two-day symposium, we will invite members of the gravitation consortium, as well as expert speakers to discuss network analyses, focusing on the theoretical background and psychometrics, but also making time for hands-on analyses and practical requirements (such as number of times to measure variables, minimal network, etc.).
