For almost 14 years, CAPRI has been involved in neuropsychiatric research efforts of the University of Antwerp, Antwerp University Hospital (UZA), the Antwerp Hospital Network (ZNA) and the Emmaus association.
On Wednesday, December 12, 2012 CAPRI celebrated its 10th anniversary. CAPRI looked back at the past decade with a symposium with international guest speakers.
For this occasion a complete Acta Psychiatrica Belgica was dedicated to the research center.
"In ten years we have a great track record," explains founder and coordinator Professor Bernard Sabbe. "That we may celebrate our 10th anniversary, is definitely an important milestone. There are not many centers in our country which perform scientific research into psychiatry. The importance of problems caused by psychiatric disorders cannot be underestimated. One out of four people will have to cope with psychiatric problems during his or her life. "
