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 :

Activities that raise the level of involvement of Member Associations in European matters, and produce a greater understanding of and support for EFPA activities

In this ES our member associations would be expected to organize a number of events, such as: 

  • Present information on history of the country, history of psychology, history of links with Europe and rest of the world, recent contributions to psychology.
  • Organization of research, teaching (incl. curricula), health care, psychological practice.
  • Key information on the association itself, how it is organized, which services it provides to its members.
  • Host a Presidents Council meeting.
  • Have a website explaining Europe and EFPA to members in the country.
  • Have a web-space within EFPA with the above information.
  • Organize additional events, like study visits of foreign colleagues.
