In 2022, EARA, EADP and SRA will again jointly organize a summer school focusing on research on adolescence. The summer school is a training ground for young scholars interested in adolescent development. The summer schools bring together established researchers, recognized for their expertise and teaching abilities with doctoral students from around the globe, for several intensive days of research training. The training includes exposure to innovative and creative research, as well as workshops focusing on professional skills. The summer schools have given students enthusiasm to search for scientific guidance outside of the borders of their countries and the walls of their universities.


The 2022 EARA-EADP-SRA Summer School will be held in Dublin, Ireland from August

21st to August 24th (just before the EARA2022 conference, submission deadline January 10), th

with arrival on August 20 . The site for the school will be in Wicklow, a nice town nearby Dublin, Ireland. The summer school will be directed by Susan Branje, Lisa Kiang, Oana Negru-Subtirica, and Stefanos Mastrotheodoros. Senior Scholars participating this year will include (in alphabetical order): Toon Cillessen, Candace Currie, Nancy Hill, Lisa Kiang, Noona Kiuru and Andreas Neubauer.


We invite doctoral students in any part of the world to apply. A total of 24 students (8 per association) will be selected based on their academic records, research experience, letters of recommendation, and overall evidence of scientific aptitude and competence. Students who apply should have their doctoral research planned or underway, but not completed, so that they can benefit from the critiques given during the school. Students will have to cover their own travel costs, with accommodations from August 20th to August 24th and meals from August 21st to August 23rd paid for by the School. Students from outside of Europe selected by SRA (whose travel costs are expected to be substantially higher) can opt for an SRA travel fellowship.



 Applications must be received by April 5, 2022. All applications received by that date will be

evaluated by members of the EARA-EADP-SRA Summer School Committee, with

notifications emailed before the early bird registration deadline of the EARA2022 conference,


May 15th , 2022.

EADP summer tour is behind us, Turku 2023 is ahead of us


The EADP online summer tour that took place September 3, 10 and 17 and that was organized by three scientific teams located in three European countries was a pleasant event that attracted close to 200 active presenters.


The organizers did a great job; the presentations were really stimulating and the online atmosphere was really nice. Certainly, a face2face meeting would have been even more attractive, but given the pandemic the summer tour was an excellent opportunity.


Here are some feedbacks from the participants:


“It has been a pleasure joining the EADP Summer Tour and meeting you and the other organizers and members.”

“Thank you very much for organizing such a beautiful event, for your participation and all good things which we all could experience during EADP 2021 Summer Tour. I will wait for the next conference in Turku.“

“I would like to thank you for this great EADP summer tour! It was my first time attending an EADP conference and it was a very great and insightful experience for me as a young scholar. I hope I have a chance to meet you in person in the near future and talk more about research!”


The EADP 2023 will be take place between August 28 and September 1 in Turku, Finland. We keep you informed about deadlines and further details.
