1. European Semester of Psychology

Now: European Semester of Psychology in UKRAINE

July 1 - Dec 31, 2019


European Semester of Psychology in Ukraine

July - December 2019:


All activities of the European Semester were confirmed by the universities and institutions of Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odessa, Dnipro, Zhytomyr, Sumy, Ternopil, Lutsk.

A number of international, European and local events are scheduled. We call on the working groups and committees of EFPA to hold meetings in Ukraine late in the year.

Your arrival and involvement in the partnership-building process with Europe and the world will enhance the further development of Ukranian psychology.

After three revolutions (Revolution on Granite 1990, Orange Revolution 2004, Revolution of Dignity 2013-2014) we finally realized, that we have to move forward without great expectation for outside help.  

We are waiting for the goodwill and support for desire to become colleagues, co-authors of our common European psychological history.

Welcome to Ukraine!

European Semester of Psychology: Members Associations are invited to organise a European Semester of Psychology in their country. They can opt to be organizer or steward or leader of a European Semester (ES) of 6 months.


Create common space for European Psychology that would greatly facilitate knowledge sharing and joint activities, which would in their turn stimulate the development of a European identity among psychologists in Europe.

Activities :
