The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research announces foundation of EU-OPENSCREEN

The German Federal Minister, Anja Karliczek, states "EU-OPENSCREEN will bring new dynamics to the discovery of new drugs"

EU-Openscreen's office and substance library will be located on the Berlin-Buch campus. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research will contribute around 20 million Euros to the European project over a period of five years.

EU-OPENSCREEN will create a European substance library in Berlin that will pool the expertise and resources in the field of chemical biology spread across Europe. Researchers thus have access to an extensive collection of substances and a broad spectrum of methods that facilitate their search for new active substances - from pharmaceutical substances to natural substances for pest control in agriculture.
