The European Congress of Psychology

To promote the development and application of psychology in Europe and beyond, EFPA organises the bi-annual European Congress of Psychology (ECP). It is the place where European psychology presents itself and where psychologists from Europe and from other continents can meet and share knowledge.


The ECP is organized by a national member association of EFPA under the auspices of and in collaboration with EFPA. It is held in another European country every two years.

ECP 2023 is proudly hosted by
The British Psychological Society

The British Psychological Society (BPS) is a professional body and learned society with over 65,000 members who are passionate about the role psychology plays in all aspects of our lives. Founded in 1901, the BPS is the oldest psychological association in Europe and one of the oldest in the world.

The BPS supports the practice of psychology by developing guidance, and quality-assuring psychology education and training through our course accreditation process. All this is underpinned by our strong commitment to the science of psychology and research, where our academics work together to foster integrity in science and increase the impact of psychology research.

Community is at the heart of the BPS. With over 150 individual networks of passionate people, the BPS is committed to uniting the profession to produce innovations, cross boundaries and influence disciplines outside of psychology for the greater good.

The BPS’s works with policymakers and parliamentarians in Westminster and the devolved nations to bring psychological evidence to the heart of government. ECP 2023 is central part of this strategy, as we come together to showcase the breadth and depth of our discipline and bring the added value of psychology to a wider policy audience.
