  • presentation of associations and companies

In order to motivate students to volunteer in the field of psychology, big Croatian associations and companies with available volunteer places present their work on the congress. Students are able to get in touch with them and find an internship or a volunteer place they find interesting.

  • rich social content

Through the congress the emphasis is on the networking between psychology students. There are two big parties organised and a fun Scavenger hunt in Zagreb city to get to know Zagreb in a fun way.
