The 31st ECNP Congress will take place in Barcelona from 6-9 October 2018.

The ECNP Congress that occurs annually is Europe’s largest meeting on applied and translational neuroscience. 
Held in autumn every year, the Congress brings together a vibrant group of psychiatrists, neuroscientists, neurologists and psychologists from around the world to discuss the latest developments in the science and treatment of brain disorders.

With around 6000 participants, the ECNP congress is Europe’s premier showcase for new research, treatments and technologies in applied brain science. Spanning the spectrum of human mood, behaviour, cognition and emotion, the congress covers most brain-related aspects from basic science to clinical care.
