Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great honor and pleasure to invite you to the ​XVI PhD Meeting in Psychology, ​taking place May 21st - 22nd, 2020, at Iscte, Lisbon.

This meeting will be an opportunity for psychology students and young researchers to exchange new ideas and share their most recent work in the many fields of psychology.

This year’s theme “Psychology in a Changing World” will explore the role of psychology in promoting adaptation, resilience and well-being in an ever-changing social, cultural and environmental landscape.

During the two days of the conference, we will welcome renowned psychologists and “scientists in the making”, whose work reflects the diversity of psychological research.

We believe this meeting will provide a unique opportunity for sharing experiences and research results, exchanging feedback and discussing challenges, as well as fostering collaboration and envisioning future advances of our field.
