VNOP Conference 2024 – Thank you for your participation!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the VNOP Conference 2024 held on May 30-31 at Tilburg University. Your presence and contributions were instrumental in making this event a success!

This year’s conference, which emphasized the lifespan perspective, featured symposia and talks covering development across all stages of life. We were delighted to see many of you at the pre-conference workshop organized by the Tilburg Experience Sampling Center (TESC) on May 29, where participants learned how to design an Experience Sampling Method (ESM) study. We hope you enjoyed the keynotes from Yvonne Brehmer, Matteo Giletta, and Anna Lichtwarck-Aschoff. The Awards Ceremony on Friday was a highlight, celebrating outstanding contributions to developmental psychology. Savannah Boele (Erasmus University, Rotterdam) won the VNOP Dissertation award, Paula Bange (Tilburg University) the Best Flash Talk award, and Nina Komrij (Leiden University) the Best Poster Award.

Thank you once again for your active participation and engagement. We hope these two days sparked new ideas and collaborations that will continue to strengthen the field of developmental psychology. We look forward to welcoming you again at future VNOP events.
