The International Association of Applied Psychology is the oldest international association of psychologists. Its official languages are English and French. Founded in 1920, it now has members from more than 80 countries. Its main missions are to promote the science and practice of applied psychology and to facilitate interaction and communication about applied psychology around the world.
Every four years IAAP organizes a world congress of applied psychology which serves as a review of advances in applied psychology and unites several thousand psychologists from all over the world. The 25th ICAP was held in Singapore in 2002, the 26th ICAP in Athens in 2006, and the 27th ICAP in Melbourne in 2010.
These congresses belong to the main responsibilities of IAAP inasmuch as they are particularly suited instruments to pursue the Association’s mission of bringing applied psychologists in world-wide contact with each other. In addition, the ICAP offers the unique opportunity to demonstrate the societal significance of applied psychology.
