Why become an EAPP member

EAPP is committed to promoting personality psychology within Europe and beyond. In doing so and to fulfill the mission of fostering diversity and inclusion, a core aspect of EAPP is the support of EAPP members with several initiatives. The initiatives may target different groups of researchers, but all of them are reasons to become an EAPP member as members get several benefits and preferential treatments (e.g., reduced conference fees, possibilities to submit proposals, etc.). Further, EAPP is currently the only scientific association focused purely on personality psychology that offers such a comprehensive package to its members.

You can find more information about the benefits of the EAPP paid membership and the EAPP resources and opportunities available to all personality researchers in the following tables:
