Second regional meeting of psychology students – SPIRI 2015

Dear psychology students, dear friends!

The association of psychology students Psirius, active at the University of Rijeka, is proud to call you to participate in the second regional meeting of psychology students – SPIRI 2015, an event that is a Congress in which we want to promote scientific thought of students, future psychologists, academics and other representatives of social studies. In addition (or rather above it) SPIRI is primarily designed as a meeting of psychology students, for understanding and recognizing future colleagues from the region and beyond.

This year’s SPIRI will be held from 7-9 May 2015, and the application deadline is April 6th 15th 2015. We invite all students of psychology, as well as colleagues who have recently (a year ago or less) graduated to send their applications and papers, workshops or poster presentations via the official website of the meeting APPLICATION.

Also, believing in the usefulness of interdisciplinary approaches and wanting to take advantage of the opportunities offered by studying at the University, especially students studying surrounded by other scientific disciplines, we send a special invitation to interdisciplinary researchers that have a common area of interest with psychology students. Convinced of the future benefit of practicing foreign languages and getting to know the international literature, we please ask you to submit your summary in English, and we encourage a practice of pronunciation through the oral presentation in English, in a safe surrounding of fellow students.

Wanting this year’s event to be useful for passive and active participants, within the congress part of the program SPIRI 2015 we include interesting guest speakers and discussions, this year focusing on the position of the psychological profession in the community, and the responsibility of psychologists to offer their knowledge to the general public in the context of current social and political events. Therefore, with openness to interdisciplinary and international participation, this year’s motto of SPIRI is psychology without borders. A panel discussion by psychology students will go over the borders in dealing with the topic of student cooperation in Europe and the possibilities of international exchanges for psychology students through Erasmus+, as well as other forms of cooperation.

For more information we invite you to write to us at

We look forward to your applications, active and passive, and we guarantee the well known hospitality of Rijeka and a memorable encounter with enthusiastic psychology students!
