Fellow membership recognises the achievements of distinguished members. Fellows are selected on the basis of both their excellence as researchers and their contributions to the College. Fellow members are appointed for three years. There is no limit to how many times this may renewed. A key part of their function is to serve as mentors to young scientists passing through the ECNP Certificate programme. On how to become a Fellow member, please click here.
Associate membership is available to the age of 35 for those who are actively engaged in or interested in research in neuropsychopharmacology and its related disciplines and are resident in Europe, but who do not yet fulfil the requirements of ordinary membership. Associate membership is for a period of four years maximum.
Corresponding membership is available for eminent researchers in the field of neuropsychopharmacology and related disciplines who are not permanently resident in Europe. Corresponding membership does not carry voting rights. Corresponding members cannot hold office in the Executive Committee.
Honorary membership is awarded to scientists of outstanding distinction by the General Meeting of members upon recommendation by the Executive Committee.
