Closing Apero

This second edition is dedicated to the incredible multidisciplinarity of the psychedelic fields. For this reason, the conferences will cover all of the following areas: philosophy, anthropology, pharmacology, clinical psychology, and policy making. We have selected renowned speakers who are experts in their field and come from diverse backgrounds. Two panels will be held with special guests, on the theme: "Psychedelic assisted therapy: individual and group settings and therapeutic factors” and "Contemporary issues on policy, regulation and access."

The conference is not only about academic presentations but you will also have the opportunity to meet other participants during the breaks (catering offered) and on Saturday night (food and drink included) for our networking aperitif. You will also have the chance to attend a film screening on Friday evening (Title and description of the film TBA stay tuned!)
