2023 ECP in Brighton

The 18th European Congress of Psychology, hosted by the British Psychological Society, is taking place in Brighton, United Kingdom, July 3-6, 2023

The European Congress provides an opportunity for us to learn from each other, and to bring together the research, knowledge and innovation that is unique to each country on our continent.

Psychology: Uniting communities for a sustainable world

Psychology is a truly global science which has the power to unite communities around solutions to the biggest problems facing us right now. As one, we can build a fairer and more sustainable society, but we can only do it through sharing our expertise.

ECP2023 will be bringing together psychologists from across Europe to discuss, debate and celebrate the impact of psychology.  There will be keynote speakers, symposia, workshops and the chance to get social on the famous Brighton Pier. 

Brighton is one of the UK’s leading cities for inclusivity with a forward-thinking reputation, and also the perfect spot for a seaside break.  ECP2023 hopes to see you there for sun, sea, sand and psychology!

Guidelines for the organisation of the European Congress of Psychology ECP

EFPA aims to promote the development and application of psychology in Europe and beyond, through research, education and professional practice.

In support of this EFPA organises the bi-annual European Congress of Psychology (ECP).
Since the first congress in Amsterdam in 1989 the ECP has grown in magnitude and reputation. By now it is known all over the world as the place where European psychology presents itself and where psychologists from Europe and from other continents can meet and share knowledge.
Comprehending all areas of psychology and covering the whole of Europe, the ECP provides participants – whether psychologists, students, educators, policy makers and others with an interest in psychology – with a unique opportunity to inform themselves about the state of the art in psychology as a science and a profession.
