About us

The Center of Research on Cognition and Behaviour is an independent interdisciplinary research unit at Faculty in Sopot, SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Sopot (Poland), where social psychologists and organizational psychologist collaborate on topics related to social cognition and behavior. Our Center conducts basic research and applied studies in various domains of social psychology.
