EU-OPENSCREEN ERIC: Inauguration and Introduction - 09-2018

In a festive ceremony Jean Eric Paquet, Director General of DG Research and Innovation presented the ERIC certificate on behalf of the European Commission to Georg Schütte, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and Dr. Wolfgang Fecke, Director General of EU-OPENSCREEN.

From now on, the participating institutes, including four from Germany, will cooperate within a legal framework that eliminates regulatory barriers and simplifies access to shared resources.

Webinar "Introduction to High-Throughput Screening" - April 2nd, 2020, 15:00-16:15 CET

Šárka Šímová (IMG, Prague, Czech Republic), Francisca Vicente (Fundación MEDINA, Granada, Spain), Sheraz Gul (IME, Hamburg, Germany) and Jose Manuel Brea (USC, Santiago de Compstela, Spain) presented a web-based theoretical course for researchers and students considering HTS as part of their research.

Webinar program:

  • Target identification and definition (hit, lead, drug target), assay development
  • Compound collection (desired properties, compound libraries)
  • Assay optimization, pilot screen and primary screen Hit selection and confirmation
  • Data analysis (detection technologies and data normalization)

Webinar "Tool compound/Probe evaluation and selection" - September 23rd, 2020. 15:00 - 16:15 CET

Chemical probes are indispensable tools in modern biology. These compounds are commonly used to study gene function, validate molecular targets, or dissect complex processes within cells and organisms. Probes’ main attributes reside in their potency, selectivity, and well-defined mechanism of action, yet identifying compounds that meet all the demands of an experimental design is not a trivial task.

This webinar aims to introduce the main sources/providers of chemical probes along with the criteria to assess their quality. It will also provide an overview of data platforms helpful during their selection process with live demonstrations employing the Probes & Drugs portal (, developed at the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague, Czech Republic).

Work with the European Research Infrastructures

Introduction Video - Engage with European Life Science Research Infrastructures

One of the long-term sustainability results is the newly developed European Life Science Research Infrastructures website, which highlights access and open calls from all LS-RIs for external researchers and the history of CORBEL.

To get a better idea on how to work with European Research Infrastructures, please watch our introductory video.
