Welcome to the site of the European Association for Developmental Psychology – EADP

Dear colleagues,

During the period 2013-2015 the EADP embarked on a new goal – the dissemination of evidence-based knowledge to inform European public policy and the broader public of relevant developmental research. Accordingly, for the first time at an EADP conference, we are organizing a debate on the translation of developmental science into meaningful recommendations for policy makers in Europe and beyond. With this goal in mind, we have invited Professor Rainer K. Silbereisen, Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, and Professor Christiane Spiel, University of Vienna, Austria, to organize the first debate and host it as moderators.


The Science for Policy Debate will take place between two leading international researchers in developmental science, and a renowned social scientist and coordinator of research consortia with policy relevance.

The invited speakers are:
Professor Eveline Crone, Leiden University, The Netherlands, on “Adolescent Brain Development: Risks and Opportunities”
Professor Hirokazu Yoshikawa, New York University, USA, on “Children in the Age of Sustainable Development”
Professor Hans-Peter Blossfeld, European University Institute, Italy

After the Debate a reception will follow. Please join us for this new and innovative event at the Braga conference September 8 - 12.

Best regards


Frosso Motti

President of EADP
