IMPRESS Training Agenda 2019-10

Participation of IMPRESS project in the 19th onference of the European Association of Work and Organizational Psychology (EAWOP)

The 19th c from 29th of May to 1st of June in Turin, Italy was dedicated to the topic “Working for the greater good – Inspiring people, designing jobs and leading organizations for a more inclusive society”. It was addressed to people with academic background mainly from different areas of psychology where research in the area of work and organizational psychology is discussed.

In a poster with the title “Cultural differences in the perception of stress” by Erika Spieß, Julia Reif and Katharina Pfaffinger from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München and Rita Berger and Jan Philipp Czakert from the Universitat de Barcelona we presented analyses of data from the first IMPRESS stress survey with regard to country specific effects and therefore also contributed to the dissemination of project results in an academic surrounding. The topic fits perfectly in the mission of the conference as it also makes it possible to incorporate culture and country specific differences in interventions and therefore contributes to a more inclusive society which takes into account country specific differences. We experienced interesting and fruitful conversations about potential future collaborations and opportunities for further research.

Conference in Berlin (February 2019)

In February IMPRESS project participated in the interdisciplinary PhD conference ”Working on Work” which was organized by the WZB in Berlin (Berlin Social Science Center). PhD students from different disciplines presented their dissertation projects, which were all related to the topic of work. As IMPRESS is also following an organizational as well as individual approach related to work and is focusing on work related stress, resilience and organisational development, the conference was a great opportunity to introduce the IMPRESS project. The presentations were followed by fruitful and interesting discussions and it was great to receive input and new ideas from students of other disciplines. There was high interest in the results from the first IMPRESS stress survey which we presented.
