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 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.
