Open call for EFPSA Research Summer School 2024 – Organising Committee Coordinator

Hi everyone!

Are you a motivated psychology student and would like to make friends from all around Europe? Would you like to organise an EFPSA event in your own city or country? If so, you are in luck!

























We are pleased to announce our open call for the EFPSA Research Summer School 2024 – Organising Committee Coordinator! We are looking for committed and enthusiastic psychologystudents that are interested in organising one of our exciting events! 

EFPSA Research Summer School is a seven day event in which student researchers get together with supervisors in order to start an exciting year-long research project on a relevant topic in psychology. Students immerse themselves in a programme of intercultural research where they have the opportunity to join one of the research projects led by a Ph.D. supervisor in planning and implementing a 12-month study. Apart from this, the programme is enriched by a variety of lectures given by professionals from relevant areas of psychology. Each year, all lectures and research topics are set around a theme, chosen to reflect a field of contemporary psychology. Since 2011, all RSS participants completing the training programme and committing to the research project have been invited to join the EFPSA Research Programme, extending the Research Summer School from a one-week EFPSA Event into a fully structured 12-month research programme. Finally, student researchers are welcome to present their work at the annual EFPSA Congress to the biggest audience of any EFPSA event: around 300 other psychology students, academics, and professionals!

When? July 2024
