Belgian Association for Psychological Sciences (BAPS)
Belgische Vereniging voor Psychologie/Société Belge de Psychologie
The Belgian Association for Psychological Science was founded as the Belgische Vereniging voor Psychologie/Société Belge de Psychologie in 1947 "to bring together all those who, in Belgium, make psychology (understood as a non-philosophical discipline) the object of their theoretical research or their practical and professional activity". Membership is open to university-trained people working in the field of psychology (master's or doctor's degree).
Persons with a degree in psychology can be full members; others are associate members. The Belgian Association for Psychological Science has around 350 members. The Association represents all theoretical and applied fields within scientific psychology, including cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, personality and social psychology, and ergonomics. The Association organizes an annual meeting, where members and other researchers present their latest research.
BAPS organizes several activities among which:
- An annual meeting gathering 200 to 300 researchers, professors and students working in the Belgian universities (as well as international speakers and participants);
- The publication of the "Psychologia Belgica" journal;
- An email list; and
- The Best Master Thesis award.
Any person interested in scientific research in psychological sciences is invited to affiliate to BAPS
