The OPEN Foundation is a non-profit organization whose primary goal is to stimulate scientific research into psychedelics from multiple disciplines. We aim to foster a healthy academic climate in which scientists are able again to investigate the mechanisms of action, risks and potential clinical applications of these substances. We regard the therapeutic potential of psychedelics to be promising and worth a serious investigation. Therefore, the collection and dissemination of objective and science-based information is crucial to further our understanding of these substances.
The OPEN Foundation is working towards these objectives through:
♦ The organization of lectures, conferences and other informative meetings at universities.
♦ By providing financial support for academic research and aiding students in their search for scientific supervision.
♦ By creating a network of students, scholars, researchers, medical professionals and therapists, through which they can connect, mutually inspire and start collaborations.
♦ By forming a platform for the collection and dissemination of current scientific developments.
