Copenhagen 2023

The 2023 Research Academy meeting of the European Society for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (ESCAP) is scheduled to take place in Copenhagen from 27th to 28th of June 2023, just prior to the ESCAP main congress (29th June - 1st July, Copenhagen, Denmark).

The aims of our annual meetings are to promote research excellence and collaborative work among young clinician-scientists in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry (CAP). The ESCAP Research Academy wishes to support early careers by promoting training, encouraging collaborations and by providing a forum to share experiences with senior world leading researchers in psychiatry.

This 2-day meeting will be chaired by two clinician-scientists, Dr Paul Klauser and Dr Alexis Revet, and by Professor Johannes Hebebrand, editor-in-chief of European Child + Adolescent Psychiatry (ECAP) and head of the ESCAP Research Division. Attendees are asked to collaborate within a network after the meeting to tackle a research question at the European level (see some examples here: Revet et al. Eur Child Adolesc Psychiatr 2018; Barrett et al. Eur Child Adolesc Psychiatr 2020; Revet et al. Eur Child Adolesc Psychiatry 2021a ; Revet et al. Eur Child Adolesc Psychiatry 2021b).

Requirements for participation are the following:
  • < 40 years old;
  • Trainee or < 5 years after completion of training in child and adolescent psychiatry or child and adolescent clinical psychology;
  • Ideally but not a strict requirement: At least one first-authored paper published or in press in a peer-reviewed journal indexed in Pubmed;
  • Submission of an abstract for a short presentation of your research at the Research Academy meeting;
  • Submission of a cover letter highlighting your academic perspectives;
