May 10th, 2019 “EPP Day”
EPP Symposium

Every year, the EPP board commissions the organization of an annual EPP-day, in collaboration with the EPP educational committee. It is strongly recommended that all EPP researchers attend this special event. Main aim of the conference is to facilitate a platform where EPP members (both juniors and seniors) can meet and exchange ideas in an inspiring atmosphere. The program provides an up-to-date overview of the most exciting new research that is being conducted within the school. A prominent keynote speaker from outside the school is invited, who presents on a broad theme related to experimental psychopathology. In addition, the annual price for the best academic paper (“de artikelprijs”) is handed out to a promising young researcher
