The aim of ASPO is to strengthen the network of social psychology in the Netherlands and thereby promote links between social psychologists in the Netherlands. The most important means of achieving this is the annual ASPO conference: a two-day conference at which social psychologists have the opportunity to get to know and inspire each other from each other’s work, and to meet each other in an open and informal atmosphere. This connecting role of the conference makes it easier throughout the year to approach each other for the exchange of knowledge and ideas. 

In addition to the ASPO conference, the board of ASPO supports all kinds of other meetings that are relevant to its members. These meetings also help to connect ASPO members.
