28th ECNP Congress

29th August to 1st September 2015, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The ECNP Congress is Europe’s largest meeting on applied and translational neuroscience. Annually it brings together between 5,000 and 7,000 psychiatrists, neuroscientists, neurologists and psychologists from around the world to discuss the latest developments in the science and treatment of disorders of the brain.

Spanning the spectrum of human mood, behaviour, cognition and emotion – from basic science to clinical care – the ECNP Congress is Europe’s premier showcase for new research, treatments and technologies in applied brain science.

As the centrepiece of the Keynote session on 29 August, the Keynote lecture features a world-renowned speaker who is especially invited to present on a topic of interest that should appeal to all congress participants. The Keynote session is followed by the welcome reception, where a buffet dinner will be served.

We are proud to announce that the Keynote lecturer at the ECNP Congress in Amsterdam this year will be Frans de Waal from Atlanta, USA.
The Keynote lecture is entitled:
‘Prosocial primates: cooperation and empathy’
