About the meetingECNP audience
The ECNP New Frontiers Meeting 2023: Psychedelics will be held from 19-20 March 2023 in Nice, France, and virtually by livestream. This meeting is an essential platform for focused, high-level exchange at the intersection of research science and the development of psychedelics as new treatments for brain disorders.

Bringing together a unique mix of scientists, industry leaders, patient representatives and regulators, the meeting will explore molecular mechanisms and pharmacology, neuroimaging, psychological variables, clinical trials, regulatory requirements, and patient perspectives, in order to map out critical research horizons and identify what needs to be achieved in order to move forward with these compounds as therapeutic agents.

The meeting is designed for stakeholders interested in exploring how psychedelics are currently re-emerging as therapeutic agents at a much more comprehensively examined level than 50 years ago. The meeting will provide a state-of-the-art overview of where we stand today, and what needs to be achieved in order to move forward with some of these powerful, but scheduled compounds. The major topics of discussion will be molecular mechanisms and pharmacology, neuroimaging, psychological variables, clinical trials, regulatory requirements, and patient perspectives.

New Frontiers Concept

Neuroscience is facing a crisis in the translation of fundamental advances into new treatments. The crisis has seen a significant slowing-down in the development of new and better therapies, and widespread disinvestment from the field, especially in Europe. The ECNP New Frontiers Meeting was launched to help tackle this critical challenge. As Europe’s leading independent scientific association for the science and treatment of disorders of the brain, ECNP is in a unique position to provide a neutral, precompetitive platform for the exchange of insights and ideas across the spectrum of CNS research and development.
