Novel Molecules Challenge: Compensation for Your Compound Library

As a component of its Open Innovation Pavilion, Nature Publishing Group has teamed up with InnoCentive  to offer monetary awards - via its Novel Molecules Challenge - for the purpose of off-setting the costs of compound library design and maintenance.  

" " The Reduction to Practice {RTP} procedure requires that the Solver  submit a validated solution, either in the form of original data or a physical sample. Also, the Seeker is allowed to test the proposed solution. " "

InnoCentive will add the molecular structures to its secure database, and will notify Solver whenever a NMC is posted that fits any of the molecules in the Solver's library based on InnoCentive's sub-structure search. 


The Solver will then have the option, but not the obligation, to submit molecular structure(s) to that specific NMC. 


InnoCentive will not share any information about molecular structures with Seekers until after submission to the specific NMC.

" " This NMC Challenge is targeting Solvers who have compounds already made (on the shelf). " "

Your nanostructure can be the breakthrough nanomaterial-based catalytic solution that accelerates understanding of nanochemical systems and might well serve to bridge the comprehension gap between exhibited classical and quantum behaviors of dendrimers, nanoclusters, nanowires, peptides, nanocomposites, nanomorphology, polymers, CNTs, nanocrystals, chemical_catalysis, and molecular recognition.


Inclusion of such a contribution to the Nature/InnoCentive knowledgebase might very well generate the db hits which will prove crucial to studies in regenerative nanomedicine and the furtherance of understanding of nanotoxicologic and nanopathogenetic processes.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
