The European Federation of Psychologists' Associations is the umbrella organization of national societies in the field of psychology that are located in the European Economic Area. Currently, there are 36 member associations, which together represent over 300,000 psychologists[1] and include all 28 members states of the European Union. Moreover, there are 13 organisations registered as associate members.[2]

The federation is concerned with promoting and improving psychology as a profession and as a discipline, particularly, though not exclusively, in applied settings and with emphasis on the training and research associated with such practice. Its official journal is the European Psychologist. In 2009, the federation launched the EuroPsy register.

The federation was founded in 1981 and the first general assembly was held in Heidelberg. Since then, general assemblies have been held every two years in different European cities. Since 2011, the general assembly is held in conjunction with the biennial European Congress of Psychology.
