About the EASP


The European Association of Social Psychology aims to promote excellence in European research in the field of social psychology. To this end it sets up a large variety of activities and it creates publication outlets for significant research contributions. As such it contributes to the scientific communication among European social psychologists as well as between Europe and Social Psychology in the world at large. One of the most important activities of the EASP is the Summer School that brings together graduate students in social psychology from all over Europe. In addition to the immediate educational benefits, enduring friendships and research collaborations are often formed at these schools.


About the EASP Summer School


The EASP Summer School is currently organized every two years and is a central activity of the European Association, and one that has a long and illustrious history - many members have benefited over the years from this unique chance to work with up-and-coming and established scholars from around Europe and indeed the globe (see below). It provides an ideal educational opportunity where much can be learnt about theory, methodology, and research design in social psychology, whilst also honing communication and presentational skills. It stimulates the cross fertilization of ideas and approaches between countries, continents and cultures as well as individuals. The close working in small groups provides a uniquely intense "hothouse" environment with the teaching more interactive than didactic. It is also "fun". The social networks that emerge often lead to lifelong collaborations and friendships and those attending will be encouraged to design and develop collaborative research projects that continue afterwards.


The EASP Summer School 2014 will take place from Sunday, August 17 (arrival day) to Saturday, August 30 (departure day) 2014 in Lisbon, Portugal.


The Summer School will be co-hosted by the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon (ICS-UL) and the University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL). The Summer School is intended to provide graduate students in Europe with the opportunity to come together for a two-week period to receive instruction and supervision from senior social psychologists. It also provides graduate students with the chance to meet graduate students from other European countries. Since many of these students go on to become full-time academics, this means that it is possible for even junior academic staff to have an established network of contacts throughout Europe, drawn from fellow-participants in a Summer School. In this website, you can find all the necessary information to apply and prepare for your participation in this Summer School.
