European Association of Personality Psychology (EAPP)

The Summer School of Personality Science (SSPS) is a week-long summer school sponsored by EAPP with approximately 12 –16 graduate students (master's and PhD level) and approximately 6 – 8 internationally renowned experts. It is broadly geared towards providing cutting-edge and specialized education as well as hands-on experience to young and budding personality psychologists from all over the world. The mini-curriculum, with different 1- to 2-hour course formats (e.g., keynotes, seminars, workshops, panel discussions, mentoring, luncheons), is designed to address a broad variety of current and important topics in personality science as well as provide student attendees with career advice and networking opportunities.
