Dear Colleagues,

The University of Padua is delighted to host the 31st annual conference of the European Health Psychology Society from the 29th of August to the 2nd of September 2017. The conference theme is “Innovative ideas in Health Psychology”.

The city of Padova

Padova (or Padua in English) is one of the most charming and dynamic towns in Italy. The historical centre boasts a wealth of medieval, renaissance and modern architecture; here a fascinating mix of historic and new, of centuries-old traditions and metropolitan rhythms creates a unique atmosphere. The medieval palaces, churches and cobbled streets emanate a sense of history and culture, the shops, markets and locals, a sparkling vitality and vibrant modern life. We look forward to welcome you to Padova, a town of vast cultural and artistic heritage!
