OPEN FOUNDATION MISSION

The OPEN Foundation has a mission towards integrating the benefits of psychedelics into science, healthcare, and society. OPEN also operates from a set of core values that act as guiding principles for decision making. On this page, you can learn about our vision, mission, and values.

OUR MISSION

Founded in 2007, the OPEN Foundation is the leading nonprofit organisation dedicated to advancing psychedelic research and therapies in the Netherlands and Europe. We bring together and educate professionals, policymakers, and the public through conferences, trainings and membership programmes, along with conducting and promoting rigorous interdisciplinary research into psychedelics.

OUR VISION

We envision a world where safe, beneficial, and accessible applications of psychedelics are ethically and responsibly integrated into science, healthcare, and society.

OUR VALUES

The OPEN Foundation stands by and operates from the following values that all of us here cherish. We hope these values can act as a source of inspiration for others.

INDEPENDENCE

To remain committed to sovereign action, critical perspective, and without being influenced by commercial agendas or profit motives.

SCIENTIFIC RIGOUR

To apply the highest standards for scientific research based on openness, objectivity and intellectual integrity.

COLLABORATION

To cooperate with other organisations and individuals that share our values towards achieving common goals.

INTERDISCIPLINARY

To involve, draw on, and interconnect all relevant sources of knowledge in the sphere of psychedelic research.

INTEGRITY

To be uncompromising in our commitment to strong ethical and scientific principles in every situation.

HUMANISTIC

To emphasize the subjective nature of the psychedelic experience and its potential for healing and well-being.
