Psychedelic research and medicine: For the second time, the non-profit MIND Foundation is hosting the international conference INSIGHT from September 9-12, 2021   

Research, educate, discuss: The international conference INSIGHT 2021 is a unique opportunity for experts from research and medicine as well as the interested public to exchange knowledge on the topic of psychedelic therapy and research worldwide. A total of 70+ speakers from the fields of medicine, psychiatry, psychotherapy, neuroscience, philosophy, social and political sciences, public health, business and politics will give presentations. “We again expect participants from more than 50 countries, among them Switzerland, England, France, Israel, Canada and the USA. There is a lot of interest in exchanging experiences and transferring knowledge about these new therapies. Currently, we are seeing a lot of movement on the topic of psychedelic medicine. Such research and new treatment approaches in medicine in general need lively exchange. And that is exactly what INSIGHT was created for”, say MIND founders Andrea and Henrik Jungaberle. All lectures and panels can be followed via the livestreaming service Airmeet. Online participation is still possible at Ticketholders get access to the entire recorded program as well as additional panel discussions over the course of the six months following the conference.  

The hybrid conference, which is already sold out on-site, will take place at Berlin’s Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus in Mitte.
