ECNP Workshop for Junior Scientists in Europe

workshopDuring this three-day workshop in Nice, France, junior scientists from Europe are brought together with research leaders to discuss the latest advances and perspectives on specific topics. By promoting and encouraging the development of junior scientists seeking to pursue research careers in neuropsychopharmacology, the ECNP Workshop aims to stimulate high-quality experimental and clinical research in mental disorders and their treatments.

The Workshop focuses on three recurring topics and one variable topic. The three recurring topics are:

  • Molecular and cellular 
  • Behavioural and systems 
  • Clinical neuroscience

The next ECNP Workshop for Junior Scientists will take place on 15-18 March 2018 in Nice, France.
The variable topic of the 2018 is:

  • Modern phenotyping technologies 

Within each topic two distinguished scientists addressed specific themes, after which there were short presentations by five junior scientists, who were invited to present their research.

In addition, all participating junior scientists are required to present a poster.

  • Attendance is limited to 100 junior scientists, selected on the basis of application. 
  • For those selected, there is no registration fee and accommodation is covered by ECNP. Hotel accommodation is offered for three nights in a shared room, with breakfast, at the workshop venue.
  • A number of participants will be invited to speak at the next ECNP Congress.  


The ECNP Workshop is funded by the ECNP Scholarship and Research Foundation (R&S), a public-interest-serving entity.
