We are pleased to announce that the Stress and Resilience conference will take place on

April 15th-16th 2024 at EPFL, Lausanne (CH)

Stress affects an alarming proportion of the global population, with recent surveys revealing that 41% of
adults worldwide experience significant stress. This widespread problem not only jeopardizes mental and physical health but also results in substantial economic losses, with Switzerland alone witnessing a productivity loss of 6.5 billion Swiss Francs annually due to work-related stress.

Our two-day scientific conference will bring together leading scientists and stakeholders from around the world. This event will cater to a diverse audience, including early career researchers, PhD students, postdocs, and seasoned academics. The conference will feature presentations showcasing the state-of-the-art work on stress and resilience research, offering insights into the sources of stress across various contexts and discussing targeted interventions to reduce stress and promote mental health.

This event will also be the opportunity to officially launch the Global Stress and Resilience Network (GSRNet), funded by the Swiss Academy of Sciences and co-directed by Profs. Carmen Sandi (EPFL) and Dominique de Quervain (Uni Basel).

Deadline to register: March 31st, 2024
