For academic researchers and companies aiming to utilise chemical biology tools to advance basic research or early drug discovery projects, EU-OPENSCREEN is a not-for-profit European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) dedicated to supporting your research at every stage.

Our network includes 30 partner sites, featuring facilities for compound screening, medicinal chemistry, and chemoproteomics, and spans leading research institutions across eight European countries. By accessing our compound collections, you can leverage advanced technologies and expert guidance to develop tool compounds and high-quality leads. Our European Chemical Biology Database offers new insights into your targets or disease-relevant pathways.

Securing project funding can be challenging, but through the EU-OPENSCREEN network, we provide support for your grant proposals, risk-sharing models, or public-private collaborations. Our network has secured millions of Euros in research funding over the past decade.

Join the EU-OPENSCREEN community to explore our resources, collaborate with top experts, and make new discoveries together. Welcome to EU-OPENSCREEN, your collaborative research partner in chemical biology and early drug discovery.
