11-14 January 2022
SEC, Glasgow, Scotland
It is exciting now to be embarking on the final preparations knowing that the restrictions on travel are being relaxed everywhere and rates of vaccination are constantly increasing and are particularly high across Europe. The EAWOP Congress may be the first opportunity for our community of Work and Organizational Psychology academics and practitioners to once again meet and share ideas.
Over the last year we have sometimes wondered whether a face-to-face congress would be possible, but now the advice we have been given from our venue and government sources, coupled with easier travel and the successful opening up of other events gives us the confidence to focus on delivering a face-to-face event. We will of course be taking steps to ensure that our meeting is as safe as possible for everyone. This includes asking delegates for evidence of vaccination or immunity, or a recent negative test. We will also be asking for delegates to wear masks around the congress venue.
We have been very pleased with the large number of submissions we received showing how much excellent work has been carried out over the last two years. Our interactive programme is now available – so you can see for yourself what colleagues have been working on. This is in addition to our invited programme featuring some of our leading scientists and practitioners – based on our congress theme: Interventions at Work – Integrating Science and Practice. While the theme was agreed before the pandemic, it seems particularly appropriate when we have all been thinking about the countless changes to our lives and workplaces it has brought.
Registration is now open for the congress. You can also book for our extensive programme of workshops which take place on Tuesday 11th January. Topics range from methodological approaches to new interventions at work. Full details are available here.
The Congress location is Glasgow, Scotland. This 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 venue for more information. We have negotiated pay-on-arrival terms with many hotels around the SEC congress centre if you book via our link.
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.
