The International Applied Military Psychology Symposium

The International Applied Military Psychology Symposium - IAMPS  -
is an annual meeting of military psychologists from around the world aimed at identifying and developing best practice procedures concerning the field of applied military psychology.

Its main focus is to enable a dialogue among international military psychologists to share the latest applied research advances as well as information on organization-specific procedures and lay the groundwork for collaboration. This process stimulates important research resulting in significant improvements. By uncovering potential synergies it supports the goal of cost efficiency and also helps to improve interoperability. Therefore the spotlight of IAMPS is concentrated on a profound exchange of experiences in the field of applied military psychology.
