VNOP stands for Vereniging voor Nederlandse Ontwikkelings-Psychologie

We are the Dutch Society for Developmental Psychology.

Our organisation was founded on June 27, 2007 and aims to facilitate Dutch Developmental Psychology in the broadest sense. This aim extends to both scientific research and academic education. We include the subject of Pedagogics, and support scientists in both the Nederlands and Flanders.
