Over kinderen, hun psychische problemen, hun ouders en hun behandelaars.

To become the number one voice in Europe

The Research Academic Division intends to be the flag ship of ESCAP. From this forum we can show the world what European child and adolescent psychiatry has to offer. In order to do so, we have a few challenges ahead of us.

Firstly, we must organize congresses of high quality, with influential speakers, leaders in their field, the presentation of a coherent program, and the endeavour to maintain a presence for ESCAP between congresses. I believe that we can achieve this through developing stronger links with the ECAP Journal. ESCAP Online, our meeting place on the internet, can and will play an important role in this development. Through the ECAP Journal and ESCAP Online, ESCAP members have the chance to be as active in between congresses as they are during those four or five exciting days when we meet in the flesh.

The goal of ESCAP is to become a strong voice for child and adolescent psychiatry in Europe. This includes academia and research in child and adolescent psychiatry. To sustain that effort, ESCAP has an impressive International Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB), composed by the very best and leading European and world experts, ranging from clinical research, psychotherapy research, pharmacology, genetics, and neurosciences. This is a very important asset in the progress of ESCAP.

As the chair of the ISAB, I will take up the challenge of developing it, and increasing its visibility with the ESCAP and through our ECAP Journal. Indeed, among members of the ISAB, we will identify expert field advisors entitled for a duration of two years. The responsibility of the ESCAP field advisor will be to create and lead a group of two to four experts in a field related to clinical/treatment, research or policy, taking into account European diversity. The field expert will produce an ESCAP position paper that will be published in the ECAP Journal. He will also present a keynote address and organize one or two symposia at the next ESCAP congress. With the help of our ISAB, this organization, will promote and boost the development and coordination of scientific activities within the ESCAP member countries.
