IAAP Collaboration in the 30th EFPSA Congress 2016

EFPSA is the biggest federation of associations for students in psychology in Europe and their annual congress has a high rate of participation of students from all over Europe. Specifically, in this congress have participated 350 students in psychology from all over Europe.


This year, IAAP supported the 30th Congress of EFPSA, held in Vimeiro, Portugal, as a "diamond sponsor".

IAAP supported and participated in this event with the following objectives:

1. Promote the association and the division (booth, presentation, flyer, informal meetings)

2. Encourage and support the IAAP membership (booth, presentations, flyer, informal meetings)

3. Recruit active volunteers for further projects of the division

4. Meeting with EFPSA board in order to consider further projects and collaboration

To meet these objectives, the presence of the association in the congress consisted in having a permanent booth, where the Student Division President and Nia Djourova, volunteer, have presented and promoted the association, the Division 15 and its projects, encouraging students to become members of IAAP. Beside, all the participants have received, in the registration bag, both the flyer of IAAP and Division 15.

Moreover, during the Closing Ceremony, the winners and the finalists of “Best Student Presentation”, “Best Poster” and “Best Student Workshop” have received a free IAAP membership fee for one year.

Given the common goals and objectives of both associations, IAAP Division 15 and EFPSA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, in which they commit to ensure more opportunities for their members, to promote each other, and to seek to identify projects and activities in which they may work together.
