Building Bridges – Enabling Human Performance

Invitation and call for submissions for the 34th Conference of the European Association for Aviation Psychology (Sunborn Yacht Hotel, Gibraltar)

The Scientific Committee of the European Association for Aviation Psychology (EAAP) is excited to announce the FIRST CALL for the next biannual EAAP conference. The conference will be held from 28th September to 2nd October 2020.

The 2020 conference theme “Building Bridges — Enabling Human Performance” is inspired by recent activities by the EAAP Board to build upon strategic partnerships with professional aviation organisations around the globe. We are forming new links with South America, Asia and national European aviation psychology associations. EAAP has also built new bridges with several specialised European aviation organisations in order to support and enable human  performance.

Aviation Psychology is thriving and the number of members and supporting organisations outside Europe is growing significantly.

The 34th EAAP Conference will provide a platform to strengthen not only these new strategic partnerships, but all partnerships developed over the last few years.
