Joint Advanced Schools
The 1st Venetian Maudsley Forum will bring together world-class scientists from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King's College London, and distinguished experts from European centers, with a worldwide expertise in mental health. The Forum will offer a unique intensive state-of-the-art educational opportunity for psychiatric research and clinical care at the heart of Europe, being hosted in Udine, a small Italian city with medieval and venetian beauties located in a strategic position, just over 20 km from Slovenia and about 54 km from Austria. The Conference will provide a top-level update on social, psychological and biological aspects of psychiatric disorders, reappraising cutting edge advances in both diagnosis and treatment in the fields of Adult Psychiatry, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and Addiction Psychiatry. The Forum intends to create a platform for networking, idea sharing, and knowledge exchange between mental health professionals across Europe.
