On tour with professors

WAOP Seminar

In collaboration with KLI, WAOP offers four 1-day seminars a year in which you can visit senior Work and Organizational Psychology Professors to learn about their successful methodological and theoretical approaches. These highly interesting seminars are specifically designed for PhD students in the Netherlands and Belgium. Each seminar will be organized by a different WAOP professor which gives you the unique opportunity to learn from highly specialized professors.
Attending a seminar will provide you with 1 ECTS per seminar, and you can follow as many as you want.
