Who is the OPEN Foundation?

The OPEN Foundation is an independent not-for-profit NGO, based in the Netherlands. It was founded in 2007 with the primary goal to stimulate academic research into therapeutic applications of psychedelics.

We regularly organize dedicated expert meetings, trainings, symposiums, and lectures as well as the recurring Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelic Research, all focused on high quality and responsible science.

OPEN is a non-profit organization and is largely dependent on dedicated volunteers. Philanthropist tickets are aimed at individuals who want to make a difference and to give an extra boost to advocacy, safeguarding and connection in psychedelic science.

OPEN is a central node in an ever-increasing network of experts in the field of psychedelic research in the Netherlands and Europe. Since then, it has organized three Interdisciplinary Conferences on Psychedelic Research, gathering the top of the academic world from different fields to showcase their latest findings – and to foster community in psychedelic science. Talks of ICPR 2016 and 2020 are made available afterwards.

OPEN is a public benefit organization and registered charity with the Dutch tax authorities.
