Get free access to our services via ISIDORe

Within the recently launched ISIDORe transnational access call for proposals focusing on SARS-CoV-2 research EU-OPENSCREEN offers free of charge access opportunities to interested researchers to state of the art diagnostic and therapeutic discovery services within its network of partner sites.

ISIDORe launched its first call for transnational access for projects to study SARS-CoV-2 and other pathogens. You can access EU-OPENSCREEN's screening and chemistry partner sites offering drug discovery and early preclinical development services to external researchers in academia and industry working on new therapeutics against SARS-CoV-2 variants and epidemic-prone pathogens. 

Activities range from assay development and validation of preliminary research results, to HTS hit discovery programs using high throughput in vitro biochemical and cell-based assays to further progress promising small molecules to lead development and candidate nomination stage.

Moreover, EU-OPENSCREEN teams up with European partners that offer access to antibody and nanobody discovery platforms, and to services related to the development of in vitro diagnostic tests.

What kind of funding is available?  

  • Scientific, technological, and logistical support at the selected service facility 
  • Training on provided research technologies, if needed 
  • Contributions to travel, accommodation and sample shipping 

How can you apply? 

  1. Select your service of interest related to screening, medicinal chemistry, antibody discovery and/ or diagnostics on the ISIDORe website. 
  2. Make sure to apply for an ORCID number to apply for the ISIDORe call. 
  3. Fill in the pre-application form at the bottom of the service page. 
  4. You will receive an email with an ISIDORE ID number and a second email with a link towards the EU-OPENSCREEN screening, medicinal chemistry, antibody and/ or diagnostics application page.
  5. On the application page, select the diagnostics and therapeutics services that you want to apply to and apply 
    1. for EU-OPENSCREEN screening and medicinal chemistry services access via ARIA and/or 
    2. for antibody and diagnostics services via the specific application procedure.  
  6. Always provide the ISIDORe ID number to benefit from ISIDORe funding.
