The OPEN Foundation (Stichting OPEN in Dutch) is an interdisciplinary organization that aims to stimulate research into all aspects of the psychedelic experience. By organizing lectures, conferences and other informative meetings at universities, the goal of OPEN is to draw the attention of researchers towards this promising scientific subject. We want to spread honest information on both the potential and the risks of psychedelics, and hope to decrease the taboo that still surrounds the study of psychedelics. OPEN functions as a central node in an ever increasing network of national and international experts in the field of psychedelic research. A central focus in the coming years will be the facilitation and funding of psychedelic research in the Netherlands.
