With the feedback and experience from 2021, we will make INSIGHT 2023 even greater, for example, by adding new elements such as multilingual conference tracks, invited symposia, and policy interaction. Participatory formats will allow us to openly discuss the pressing questions of our time, such as:
How can we critically learn from the past and ongoing studies?
Which therapist trainings have evolved, and how to assess their quality?
What is needed to make the transition from scientific research to societal integration?

INSIGHT 2023 will also report results from the largest science-initiated psilocybin study so far: the German EPIsoDE trial.
We are building bridges between physicians and psychotherapists, researchers, and the psychedelic industry and closing the gap between practitioners and the academic world of psychedelic research.
