ICPR 2024 - It's coming!

The Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelic Research (ICPR) is Europe’s leading academic conference dedicated to advancing psychedelic research and therapies organised by the OPEN Foundation since 2010. ICPR is a biennial conference focused on high-quality scientific and scholarly research into psychedelics.

ICPR 2024 will be OPEN’s 6th conference. After our hugely successful conference in 2022, we are returning to the prestigious Philharmonie Theatre. ICPR 2024 will take place in Haarlem (next to Amsterdam) from June 6th to June 8th, 2024.

PRE-ICPR: ONE-DAY PATHWAYS TO ACCESS SUMMIT

Potential FDA approval of MDMA-assisted therapy and growing evidence supporting psychedelic therapies, makes 2024 stand as a pivotal year for psychedelic medicine.

The Pathways to Access Summit (Paths) is a full-day add-on to the ICPR, dedicated to the challenges and opportunities around the development, approval & integration of psychedelic medicines into mainstream European health care.

Paths takes place the day before the ICPR 2024 conference, at the same location in Haarlem.
