ICPR, or Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelic Research, organizes a European science-focused conference every four years in The Netherlands. ICPR excels in the diversity of speakers and views they bring on psychedelics.


“ICPR is an academic conference focused on high quality scientific and scholarly research into psychedelics. Many academic disciplines have important contributions to make within the field of psychedelic studies. ICPR aims to bridge and connect these disciplines, and to facilitate a dialogue between the diverse academic fields and researchers involved in the study of psychedelics.”

ICPR is part of our list of conferences.


ICPR has been organised since 2012 and has brought together many of the brightest researchers in psychedelics.

It is run by the OPEN Foundation, a Dutch NGO that stimulates academic research into psychedelics in The Netherlands and Europe.

The last conference was held 24-26 September 2020 and was mostly done online because of Covid-19.

Videos from the 2016 conference can be found here.
