NRW has a multitude of innovative and promising projects from all different kinds of research fields to offer. These projects could and should result in targeted drug discovery projects. A number of research groups are approaching the LDC with their projects, however often these projects cannot be implemented due to a lack of funding and in-depth evaluation.
Within the DDHD Provendis is going to establish a continuous project scouting. The drug discovery projects will be evaluated in terms of feasibility, patent protection and exploitation potential (licensing, startups).
