5. a EFPA: Psychology - a Contribution for EU Policy Making - Nov 2011

On November 9, 2011 the first psychological conference for policy-makers took place in the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium.

This event was organized by the European Federation of Psychologists Associations (EFPA) at the occasion of its 30th anniversary. It was hosted by MEP Leonidas Donskis, MEP Nadja Hirsch and MEP Vilja Savisaar Toomast and supported by the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe.

The aim of the conference was to provide Members of the European Parliament, officials from the European Commission and other European bodies up-to-date information on psychology and what it can offer to European society. The conference highlighted psychologists’ expertise and possible contributions to policy-making in such areas as health, education, work, community, traffic and other fields.

A short report of the conference is now available here.
