Former EFPTA President nominated for prestigious award

Dr Lenka Sokolová, who was President of EFPTA from 2019 to 2022, was nominated for the EFPA Robert Roe Memorial Award. Lenka remains on the EFPTA Board as representative of Slovakian psychology teachers, a role she took up when she joined in 2008; a few years later she became a founder member of the Slovakian association (SAUP), which she continues to chair. Lenka has been closely involved in virtually all areas of EFPTA activity, and especially in terms of research in psychology education, presenting at international conferences, and hosting our own major EFPTA conferences in Prague (2016) and Bratislava (online, 2021).

In the event, the award was given to Prof Ingrid Lunt, at the ECP in July 2023. Needless to say, Lenka and EFPTA remain undaunted in our work to promote and support psychology education for young people in Europe, as championed by the late Dr Robert Roe himself!
