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.
The European Semester of Psychology is aimed at creating a common space in which European psychologists can interact and communicate so as to foster the sharing and transmission of knowledge and expertise between members and, in turn, to stimulate the ongoing development of a truly European identity among psychologists across Europe.
During the six-month period in which they play host to the European Semester, member countries are expected to organise numerous events and meetings, welcome visiting delegates and colleagues from other associations, and promote materials and information on both current and historical developments within psychology, both at home and abroad
Due to COVID-19 crisis, all preparation related to the European Semester has been put on hold.
From July to December 2019 Ukraine hosted the European Psychological Semester and organised 20 different events with 1.500 participants. Most psychologists for the first time learned about EFPA and EuroPsy. Many have also gained understanding of the National Psychology Association (NPA), which is already developing several international projects and has initiatives in the legislative field and postgraduate training of psychologists.
