European Conference of Positive Psychology 2024

11th European Conference on Positive Psychology


The 11th European Conference on Positive Psychology (ECPP 2024) will take place from 10th to 13th of July, 2024 in Innsbruck, Austria. Innsbruck is a scenic town in the heart of the Alps, the centre of Europe and a unique example of the balance between old and new, leisure and work, industry and nature. The theme of the conference is:

The focus will be on the interdependence of human beings embedded in the surrounding world. Topics will address how we can apply the science of well-being to flourish together. Nobody just arrives by themselves on this planet. Nobody lives by themselves alone. We are fully interdependent on one another and our lives are deeply intertwined within a certain context and culture.

The latest advancements in the field of positive psychology and the science of well-being, practical interventions and hands-on experiences will be brought together by leading experts from all over the world in the exciting and spectacular town of Innsbruck.

The conference program will include subjects such as happiness, resilience, hope, flow, meaning, mindfulness and well-being in different domains, settings, and cultures. We promise you an interactive and inspiring conference.

The spectacular setting of Innsbruck among the Alps will allow you to recharge your energy. Literally within minutes, you will be able to reach the highest peaks, inhale clean mountain air, get a bird’s eye view of stunning landscapes allowing you to change your perspective on how you see things.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you in Innsbruck in July 2024!
