2021 Application


Held for the first time in a virtual format, this 10th edition of the EPA Summer School addressed the topic of “Research in psychiatry” and was organised online on 23 and 24 September 2021. Over 2 training days, participants worked together, brainstormed, networked and developed a cross-European collaborative research protocol. Everybody was ready for plenary lectures, small group workshops and live exchanges with the faculty!


Selected participants had the opportunity to meet internationally renowned researchers from different fields and career stages. Dr. Nicolas Hoertel, Dr. Mariana Pinto da Costa, Prof. Andrea Raballo and Prof. Norman Sartorius did not only share their expertise on scientific skills but also conveyed their ideas and experiences with cross-European study approaches in the research field of psychiatry.
