Library Proposals

The European Lead Factory has invited European academics and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) to submit their high quality Library Proposals.

Sufficient library proposals have now been received to enable completion of the production of the Public Compound Collection in the closing stages of the consortium.

Monetary incentives up to 5000 Euros have been paid out for promising, validated proposals, following their successful translation into 50 or more physical compounds by one of the entitled European Lead Factory CRO partners.The European Lead Factory thanks everybody for excellent contributions. For European researchers, this was an opportunity not only to receive a monetary incentive, but also to see molecules synthesised with real potential to support future drug discovery.

The video below explains how the crowdsourcing approach for chemical library ideas worked.
