Summer Schools

Since 2018, the summer schools of EAPP are called Summer School of Personality Science. The overarching goal of the SSPS is to invest in the future of personality psychology by bringing together internationally renowned experts and stellar graduate students (at the master’s and PhD level) interested in personality, individual differences, and assessment. In addition to providing a cutting-edge curriculum to young personality researchers, this may lead down the line to building stronger international ties, increasing diversity within our field, and stimulating new collaborations.
