‘...promotes research on human development all over the world...’
ISSBD - ISSBD Biennial Meetings

ISSBD Biennial Meetings

The ISSBD Biennial Meeting is an occasion for ISSBD members to meet, network and collaborate with other researchers of human development from around the world, helping foster research, education and scholarly collaboration. Delegates are given the opportunity to present their own research on behavioural development, while also learning more about human development research in the areas of developmental science, health, education, psychology, sociology and related fields.
