Last week, EFPSA has actively participated on 12th European Congress of Psychology (ECP) from 4th to 8th of July in Istanbul, and on EFPA General Assembly (GA) from 9th to 10th of July. We are happy to share with you that our delegation has done a truly amazing job there. During the week, on our official EFPSA stand. We have met a lot of professionals and students from all over the globe. We have hosted the joint EFPSA & IAAP-SD roundtable discussion on topic: Students in 2011: What are our perspective and challenges? which was a success. As a organisation who cares about their students we have organised special EFPSA party in Taksim. Also, special thanks to Turkish of ECP and to nice EFPA people who were there.

Now, there are two upcoming EFPSA events this summer. First will be the European Summer School (ESS) held in Balaton (Hungary) from the 24th to the 31st of July, which is an exciting start for students into the field of international research. The second event will be the Train the Trainers (TtT) summer school from 7th to 14th of August in Paleta (Czech Republic) where participants receive a high level of training in areas such as challenging your comfort zone and knowledge of how to train others. We wish all the people involved in one of both Summer Schools a very productive and fun week!
