Telmo Mourinho Baptista new president of EFPA


 My guiding motto will be 'Affirming European psychologists in a world of diversity'. Psychology should have a bigger role in the state of affairs in Europe, and psychologists should have a greater impact. 


As the new president of EFPA I hope to work with all member organizations – and our associate members too - in the pursuit of the objectives that help advance our profession. We are stronger when we work together. I look forward to our meetings, discussions and, hopefully, many projects.

Help us grow by sending the information that helps in the publishing of this News Magazine. Share it with your members.

With its history of bringing together leading experts in psychology research, this international congress held the promise of bringing together worldwide perspectives on psychology. It attracted 3096 registered participants, and that number hit a few hundredmore during the congress, of no less than 76 different countries. This staggering number of participants, with Italy, Japan, the USA, Spain and Russia as countries of provenance, made the ECP 2015 one of the biggest European congresses of psychology so far.
This year the ECP2015 is guided by the motto “Linking technology and psychology: feeding the mind, energy for life”. The spectacular opening ceremony in the Teatro degli Arcimboldi was opened by the president of the ECP 2015 Organising Committee Dr Mario Sellini, and president of the ECP2015 Scientific Committees (Gian Vittorio Caprara).


During the ECP2015 the EFPA awards were presented, renowned scholars and practitioners, such as Professor Robert Roe, Saths Cooper and Philip Zimbardo mingled with the congress audience in the university halls and transformed the summer-dazed university campus in a buzzing metropolis of psychologists.

During the congress, many interesting key note speakers presented their work. Hundreds of poster presentations flanked the hallways, enabling the sharing of ideas and knowledge among many interested listeners and young researchers.
