The EFPSA Academy follows the values of  EFPSA, striving to provide an equal opportunity to all motivated students across all its member and observer organisations as well as to members of other youth NGOs across Europe. The EFPSA Academy aims to provide students with:

(1) an in-depth introduction to a specific and relevant soft or hard skill for volunteers.

(2) a network of student volunteers across different organisations and fields of studies.


EFPSA Academy was built around having great ideas and putting them into practice within your organisation. During the event state of the art innovation methods including assessing your users’ needs, ideation and prototyping was mastered. On top of that, participants were equipped with the necessary tools like goal setting and action planning, to ensure that their ideas do not merely remain great ideas, but would successfully put into practice within your organisation.
