The hybrid format and what it means for you

Now, for the first time, you have a choice. Depending on your preferences, you can attend the ECNP Congress in two entirely different ways: in-person in Lisbon or online.

Watch this video and discover how the ECNP hybrid congress will look like:

The events of the last year have made it clear that to continue to serve the ECNP audience, we need more creative and flexible ways to deliver ECNP Congress content. It is why we have launched the hybrid model.

With the hybrid meeting you can choose between two participation options.
For those who are able to join us in-person Lisbon, the hybrid format will allow you to:
  • Participate in the full range of scientific sessions and symposia
  • Interact face-to-face with speakers, clinical experts and research leaders
  • Participate actively in ‘Love your brain’, Campfire and Brainstorming Sessions
  • Join the poster jams
  • Discover the latest in industry developments at the industry sessions and exhibition
  • Network with colleagues and peers at catered lunch and coffee breaks
  • Experience the exceptional attractions of Portugal’s fabled capital
  • Access all online content both during and for three months after the congress (until 13 January 2022)

For those who prefer to enjoy the congress online from their home or office, the hybrid format will allow you to:

  • Follow scientific sessions and symposia by livestream anywhere in the world
  • Participate in online interactive features and live Q&As
  • Interact with industry partners via livestreamed industry sessions and virtual stands
  • Connect with colleagues using the online networking platform
  • Access all online content both during and for three months after the congress (until 13 January 2022)
