Subdivisions

The EHPS has two subdivisions: Create and Synergy.

CREATE (Collaborative REsearch And Training in the EHPS) is a subdivision of the European Health Psychology Society (EHPS), promoting education and collaboration for early career researchers working in the field of health psychology. CREATE aims to become a community consisting of a network of participants who are willing to communicate with each other and offer help whenever they can. Participation in most of the activities of CREATEis open to any doctoral or post-doctoral researcher working in the field of health psychology. CREATE offers participants a large network of researchers, access to research resources, courses, and workshops.

SYNERGY (Collaboration and Innovation in theory and research in the EHPS) is a subdivision of the EHPS which aims at the development of core fields within health psychology through collaboration of advanced researchers. Annual two or three day expert meetings are organized by Synergy to provide the opportunity for synergistic discussion about improved theoretical and methodological approaches as well as practical applications in respect to specific topics. Outcomes of the expert meetings are disseminated to a wider audience in the form of presenting them in a special symposium on the EHPS conference.
