Join us in Liverpool for ECP2024!

July 4–7, 2024 | Held in Liverpool, UK, and Online

Welcome to The 7th European Conference on Psychology & the Behavioral Sciences (ECP2024).

As we dare to look forward to recovering and rebuilding from the COVID19 pandemic, we look to this conference to help us navigate and come to terms with the resultant and ongoing local and global issues and concerns. This pandemic is far more than a medical emergency and has created ramifications that are only beginning to be felt in how we engage with each other – creating a unique opportunity to question our lives and our values, and what is truly important, including the common good. If the first part of the pandemic saw emergency responses, we are now in a position where we are seeking to build back, and do so "better". What things do we miss, and what things do we have a chance to reset and change?

ECP2024 aims to re-establish and rebuild on the strengths and successes of the previous years by offering a true celebration of bringing nations, cultures, disciplines, ideas, and most importantly people together again.

We have learned so much about what we truly value over the course of the pandemic, and we have learned of the power, but also of the limitations of technology. One of the common aspects of the pandemic has been the extent to which we have been deprived of our students, our colleagues, our friends, and our family. We have missed each other, and we have missed you.

Welcome back!
