As we write this, vaccines are being rolled out around the world, and there is hope that by January 2022 our lives will be less restricted – even if we do not return to the old “normal”. In particular, we hope, vaccination will have made a large event like the EAWOP Congress possible again.
We know there is a possibility that the new normal will still not include a face to face congress, and if so, we will provide a virtual event, but all our focus now is planning a real meeting. The EAWOP Congress may be the first opportunity for our community of Work and Organisational Psychology academics and practitioners to once again meet and share ideas.
It is an exciting prospect to meet with colleagues and hear the advances they have made since Turin 2019.
The theme of the Congress is: Interventions at work – Integrating Science and Practice. Our aim is to bring together scientists and practitioners to share ideas and create a meaningful dialogue. While the theme was agreed before the pandemic struck, it seems particularly appropriate when so many of us have been thinking about the countless changes to our lives and workplaces that the pandemic has brought.
So many of our colleagues have been researching and innovating to understand how to work effectively in the new reality. Organisations have need of our insights and the pandemic has provided an unexpected experimental garden to investigate the impact of issues like remote working on people and performance.
There are so many studies underway that EAWOP is organising a virtual conference in May to show case a few of the issues.
However this can only provide a taster. There must be so many findings ready to be shared, both studies and interventions that focus on the impact of the virus on us all as well as those that continue to address all the existing issues we have been working on as a profession while unable to travel and meet. Submissions are open with details available on the programme tab.
Glasgow is an exciting city with a vibrant culture as well as an interesting industrial history. There are plenty of restaurants, hotels and places to visit. There are direct flights from many European cities so it is easy to access. Our congress will be at the purpose built conference centre on the banks of the river. Check out our for more information.
We look forward to seeing you in Glasgow.
In addition to EAWOP 2022 in Glasgow in January 2022, EAWOP is organising a virtual conference which will focus on the impact the pandemic has had on our lives and the profound changes it has made to the way we work.
In what ways has the virus strained working life and how has it forced workplaces to change for the better? The aim of this one day conference, organised in collaboration with the British Psychological Society, is to invite leading scholars and practitioners from across the world to provide their insights – derived from research and practice – on how the COVID pandemic has reshaped working lives, the impact of these changes on employees, and how organisations can respond productively to the challenges presented by the pandemic.
The event will be open to all and free for EAWOP members with discounted rates for BPS DOP members.

Does this conference replace the EAWOP Bi-Annual Congress that was scheduled for May 2020?
No. We are still holding our bi-annual Congress. Due to the pandemic, the bi-annual Congress in Glasgow, May 2021, was postponed to January 2022, please click on the ‘register now’ button below. We are looking forward to seeing you in Glasgow!
