Research on adult and child temperament is being carried out across Europe. However, the temperament researchers and their projects tend to be scattered. As a consequence, there is little inter-connectivity among researchers and the potential for synergies is not being exhausted.

The aim of this webpage is to provide a platform for communication among European temperament researchers. We encourage any researcher who has an active program of research on temperament to write to us and to join our group --- the European Temperament Network.

The European Temperament Network plans to have regular gatherings. The first one was held in October 2007 at the Department of Child Psychiatry of the University of Basel (organizer: Prof. Klaus Schmeck). Under the rubric people & projects (available soon) you can find the names and research interests of the participants.

Among the topics currently studied are:
